Velominati Super Prestige: Trofeo Alfredo Binda 2013

Velominati Super Prestige: Trofeo Alfredo Binda 2013

by / / 114 posts

This is the second round of the Women’s World Cup, the first being the Ronde van Drenthe. Laveno Mombello to Cittiglio, 120 km of racing in Italy. It is a very worthy course and we know who will be wearing the number 1 on her jersey. Enough already, I like Ms Vos as much as the next person but someone has to work her over on the climbs and ride away. Anyone?  She has only won this race three times. A race with 174 racers from twenty-nine countries, someone must know her weaknesses. Maybe Eva Mottet knows, maybe her father Charlie has fired her up into a Vos crushing frenzy.

Review the profile and start list and roll your eyes or bones or whatever it is that you think will make you less bad at picking the winner. So get your picks in by midnight on Sunday Pacific time. If you don’t know what time that is, just get your picks in by the time the countdown clock goes to zero. Points collected go towards the 2013 Velominati Super Prestige where the winner’s spoils include the personalized Velominati Shop Apron. Good luck.

  7. @sgraha Unfortunately Pooley will not start this year’s Trofeo Alfredo Binda. Article on Pooley.

    The Cambridge graduate (Pooley), who is taking a step down in 2013 to allow herself to concentrate on finishing a PhD in geotechnical engineering also vented a little of her frustration over the state of the women’s sport.

    While Emma Pooley will ride a far more low-profile calendar in 2013, with her new Swiss team Bigla, she will still be aiming at the World time trial title in Florence, Italy. With a year to finish her PhD and rekindle her passion for the sport, we sincerely hope to see her back at the top of women’s cycling in 2014.

  41. I guess Vos can’t win every race she enters after all.

  42. I’ve studied the riders, now I need to study the course. I just presumed we weren’t looking at a bunch sprint. Learning.

  43. The results are in – major fail to both CN and VN for not having better coverage, or even having the results up. Anyway, I’m very impressed by the community’s scoring in the women’s events this year; very much in line with Mens racing. Good on all y’alls.

    Ramen Noodles takes this one!

  44. WTF!  Were did my picks go?  I know I had a couple of pints last night before entering them, but usually that just results in bad spelling not a missing post.  And my changes for Ghent aren’t there either, not that those would have turned out any better than what I have listed.  Lesson learned, enter my choices before the pub not after

  45. Longo Borghini, a star is born.

  46. Fucking hell, double bagel…that’s a weekend to forget!

  47. @erik

    I’ve studied the riders, now I need to study the course. I just presumed we weren’t looking at a bunch sprint. Learning.

    Now I am all confused.  I swear I saw a bunch of S.T. results. Now I see that out was a solo break. Must. Learn.  Everything.  About all these races.

  48. I am doing just a well with the women as the men

  49. @Dan_R

    You sound lonely! Have you tried RSVP.com?
