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.

  3. Difficult to find odds on the internet. So this one comes from me! I managed to score 2nd place with the Giro (where I placed a pic of my pink jersey) so since I live in Switzerland, roll those dice!

    Sagan will win or 2 stages, no doubt.
