Velominati Super Prestige: La Fleche Wallonne Femmes 2016

Nothing magical happened in between us publishing the Men’s event ten minutes ago that somehow brought us another day for the VSP. I was really banking on a fissure in the space-time continuum but no luck. Seems a guy can’t catch a break.

On the surface of it, I blame the fact that Gent Wevelgem was moved to a Sunday and that has made me assume La Fleche was as well. Watertight excuse-making, right there. It is further annoying because this is not my favorite race and I feel like I might have snubbed it subconsciously; something about this finish being so tough and the bunch being so radio’d up that the break never stays away. It is always a bunch gallop up the final ramps and a game of chicken between the riders on the front before they make their bid for glory.

Anyway. We only have about 20 hours for VSP picks entry, so I’m going to stop yapping and get this baby up before I burn even more time. Hopefully you’re already done chewing on the start list and are ready to go. If not, you can take solace in knowing you probably don’t stand a chance in winning the awesome prizes on offer: Don Walker is giving away a free custom steel frame, Café Roubaix is giving away a carbon wheelset, and we are giving away a free V-Kit.

Good luck!
