Velominati Super Prestige: Tour Of Chongming Island 2016

Ok, so we know you’re all excited about the Giro starting tonight, and poring over your picks and determining who is the best of a pretty weak field. Look, it’s Nibbles then daylight, ok? Good.

Now we got a bit lost in it all too, and if it wasn’t for the eagle eye and sharp Cycling mind of @Bianchi Denti, the women’s Tour of Chongming Island would’ve had Delgado status from the folks that are supposed to be aware of such happenings. So we all need to act quick. Typing this is taking up valuable seconds that are needed to pontifi… oh shut it, here’s a Start List.

This will be a lot harder to pick than the Giro (Nibbles, I tells ya) so use your time wisely, get your picks in and do NOT complain if you miss the start, just make it up in the rest day swaps for that other race I keep mentioning for some reason that I really shouldn’t be because time is ru…. (Nibbles).

    What is the Keepers’ Oath?

    “I promise not to bully my friends.”

    “I promise not to leave my keys in the car.”

    “I promise not to depriciate nontaxable items brought forth from the previous tax year.”

    That’s what I meant! I just misspelled it.

    I believe the Keeper’s Oath is also…oh motherfucker!

    Oh, you Hawai’ians and your fancy talk.

  5. The reality is that I don’t have a fucking clue. Had to scrounge the web to find a start list.

    Thus eschewing the easy way of clicking on “oh shut it, here’s a Start List.” but who reads the header anyway?

  7. As promised, same picks I listed above prior to knowing any race results.  Thanks Frank for re-opening the pick ability!

    I have no idea, I live in the North Island haha!

     

    I had a one hour flight from Wellington to Auckland, then about 10-11 hours to Changi and another 5 or so hours to Shanghai. Chongming is an island in the estuary of the Yangtse River so it was a long bus journey and an hour on the ferry from Pu Dong Airport.

  18. Zero VSP points for sure.  Delgado’d this one.  It wasn’t there when I did my Giro picks at the last minute…

  19. So what is tomorrow’s stage like???  I cannot find a profile of it anywhere.

    As of right now, the top 8 (all that I could find for results) are separated by 18 seconds.

    Hopefully they have a killer climb tomorrow to separate the Women from the Girls!!!

  20. There are so many of us that delgado’d this thing. I hope this race doesn’t become a deciding factor later in the season. Best of luck to those sharp enough to get in on it.

  21. Cycling Tips has excellent coverage. It also looks like it is streaming on YouTube.

    I would paste the link bit I’ve reached an age where  can’t figure out how to do that on my phone.

  22. @xyxax

    Bloody Hell!  It’s a damn good thing I met my saintly amazing VMH when I did b/c I am sure not lucky with the ladies!!!  I might have one of your NITRO’s going here xyxax!

  23. @Buck Rogers

    And on Mother’s day, I can do nothing but concur on that sentiment.  Still no info on places 4 and 5, though Brett’s results give me more points than deserved.  So let’s not mention it, eh?

  24. Fuck, after having a crack at @frank for falling asleep at the wheel, Ive gone and missed the tips.

    Saving grace is I wouldn’t have any of the top 5 any way.

     

    Looks like zero is the new black.
