Velominati Super Prestige: Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile 2016

That is quite a name. And it is quite a race, no rest days, ten days of racing in Italy. This must be the biggest race in the Women’s World Tour and if it is anything like the men’s race is should be great. Let’s hope there is some decent TV coverage. The start list is here. The route map must be classified, sorry. Imagine a course in Northern Italy: mountains, valleys, plains. Anna van der Breggen won it last year but she will have to contend with Lizzy Armitstead in this edition. The Mortirolo is here, time trials, sprints, with ten days of racing, the winner should have mad all around skills

Everyone knows the drill. This race starts on a Friday so mind the countdown banner. These are good points people, so consider your choices, do your research, then select you know who.
