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.

    The smart think would be not to say anything, listen to her then post your picks.

    There is one rider who keeps getting picked as a favorite for the Giro Rosa who said she’s happy she feels strong but not at the top of her form because she wants to peak for Rio.

  5. Once again, I’m clueless but hopefully lucky.

  18. I’m almost more excited about this than I am about the Tour (although the coverage for this is only an hour). The field is balmy! No Vos; Lizzie possibly resting up for Rio; That Wiggle Squad; Pooley in the most uncharacteristically poor form ever.

    Such excite! Cue guesses…
