Velominati Super Prestige: Giro d’Italia 2016

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare for the Giro, 2016, starting in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands and finishing in Torino, Italy. Here is a provisional start list. The riders make the race so it should be fantastic racing, a race up the whole of the country, for three weeks, what’s not to love? The Giro usually has a crazy stage and we are unsure what this year’s edition holds in that category, maybe more racing at night, or on dirt, bring it on. The Shark, Landa, Malmerde, Uran Uran, even Red Ryder, and more, each have a decent shot at the over all.

We all know the drill, this race starts on Friday so keep your delgado monkey on a tight leash. Consult your personal oracles; there are bike frames, carbon wheels, V-kit and more for the winners of the season-long overall VSP. Further details can be found on the VSP page. Bon chance.

  4. I will probably regret not putting Dumoulin in my top 5. But I just don’t know that he can repeat his form of last year’s Vuelta.

  12. I think the rest of the pack will be a little too strong for the Giant D to repeat his Vuelta heroics, whereas the little Colombian is just a snowy day (& subsequent Nibs tantrum at the EWP) away from a podium place.

    VSP PICKS:

    1. His Nibs
    2. Hungry Like the Wolf
    3. Landa

    5. Domenico Pozzovivo
  14. Nibali is bringing a stacked team and its hard to go against that.  Valverde is ready for the big win and looking really good this season.  Can’t wait to see it shake out.

    VSP PICKS:

    1. VALVERDE, Alejandro
    2. Shark Attack
    3. LANDA, Mikel
    4. CHAVEZ, Esteban
    5. Ilnur Zakarin
  15. This could be the multi-faceted battle we were hoping to see in the TdF in 2014 only this time I don’t think it will go Nibali’s way. I have a feeling Nibali will abandon – either illness or misfortune. If you’ve tipped him don’t worry – generally I’m wrong about these random predictions, so much so that I’m still keeping him in.

    It’s hard to leave out Dumoulin and Majka, I’m sure I’ll regret leaving them out.

    I think Pozzovivo will be in the top ten and Peraud will be the stronger of the two.

    I was going to put Uran at the top but Cannodale just find a way to underperfom.

    I would love to put Chaves in the top 5 but I think top 10 is more realistic – I hope he makes me regret omitting him but I’m not banking on it.

  16. Sorry Nibbles, just don’t think the form is there. Not sure he can do it without a motor in a car or not…

  18. I have a soft spot for His Nibs. If he’s on the start list, I’ll pick him. That’s the extent of my logic.

    Hate to leave Majka out, but he’s my pick to crash out. We all know that a big name always does…
