Velominati Super Prestige: Tour de Suisse 2016

We are opening the rolling metal door to the VSP generator and warming it up for this weekend’s start of the Tour de Suisse. As usual, the big hitters of the Tour are riding the Dauphine; I should be more excited about that race but, yawn, not so much. The Swiss tour is longer, more climbing, generally a more awesome race and with any luck they will climb the Passo San Gottardo. The Swiss don’t fool around with their roads, tunnels or cows. Here is your start list.

OK, everyone knows the drill here. Delgado-ing is right out, this starts on Saturday, you have been warned. Prizes, rules, go to the VSP pages for the specifics.

  1. Have to say, I was tempted to put #172 in the first slot, but I doubt his commitment to

    truth in advertising.

  6. Not much to go on, but want to get a placeholder on the wall (that countdown clock was kind of sketchy during the Giro). Looking for something good from Talansky, he had a good TOC and with Dombrowski pulling him up the mountains, should be a good show!

  23. Well since my Giro ended up shit creek, in a barbed wire canoe, sans paddle with an empty beer cooler – let’s see if I can’t turn this shit show around.

    Sur la plaque, motherfuckers.

  27. Supposedly there are algorithms to assist with making accurate picks. Mine involve beer (good beer mind you) but likely not as good as math.
