Brittany is the kind of area that produces strong-minded and strong-bodied people; I’m looking at you, Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault. It produces this type of person because that’s what windy farming land does to people. Brittany is also lumped full of short, steep hills, and we all know what that means: its a perfect place for a bike race.
The next installment of the Velominati Super Prestige is the Pro VVomen’s event of the larger Grand Prix Cycliste de Plouay. This is a route for a hardwoman who has some climbing punch. Vos is racing, which basically means that the one person who doesn’t pick her will win the event should she fail to cross the line first. But how likely is that? She is a monster of a racing machine, perhaps the most well-rounded racing Cyclist ever.
Check the start list, and roll the dice. Get your picks in by midnight on the 30th. Good luck.
