Velominati Super Prestige: Vuelta a España 2012

Velominati Super Prestige: Vuelta a España 2012

by / / 411 posts

One of the loveliest things about the Grand Tours is that you get a feel, by the nature of the route, of the country’s landscape and physical qualities. Italy is littered with mountains and coasts, France is bordered by mountains with large swaths of open landscape throughout, and Spain is like Tatooine; mostly desert with some rocky outcroppings. I might be oversimplifying here, but it seems like every edition of the Vuelta features a week or two of riders cutting through open desert on a freeway and then finishing it off with some climbs that require a buzz-saw gear to get up. Of the three Tours, this one is my least favorite, but it’s a bike race and I loves me a bike race.

The Vuelta also stands apart as being the event which generally decides the Velominati Super Prestige GC and the personalized Shop Apron that goes with it; in past editions, we’ve even had newcomers to the event debut at the Vuelta and win the overall, as was the case last year with @Nate’s performance. Unless I have that wrong, in which case I don’t really care. The important point here is that even though there is less interest in this event than others, it matters quite a bit to the year-long VSP, so you better be paying attention, corporal.

No fancy prizes on offer as we did at the Tour, but we do have our customary Symbol Pack up for grabs, in addition to second and third places winning a pair of Handlebar Cufflinks each when they come available in a few weeks. So, check the race details, get your picks in by the time the countdown clock goes to zero (5am Pacific time on Saturday), and buckle in for the ride. Regular GT VSP rules apply. Good luck.

  1. Delighted to see Bennati get a win. He’s so close, so often. Always seems to up there but just not getting the win. Well deserved indeed.

  2. Another nice win for Philbert, he seems to be rounding into shape nicely for the worlds and the Giro Di Lombardia (or Il Lombardia as the case may be…).

    He owes a big debt of thanks to Ballan for helping to bridge that gap in the last few K though…

    Also looks like Gerrans is also in fine shape for the late season prizes… maybe he’ll have another chance to show some panache?

  3. LA Dave – I watched the “Call me Maybe” song and dance from Green Edge and wondered why Gerro wasn’t in it. Didn’t realize it was all filmed at the Vuelta…and that Gerro was off winning in Quebec!

    Great finish to today’s stage. It’s truly shocking to see such talented riders dissolve into turning squares like that. Definitely know the pitch was crazy, but they still always seem beyond breaking.

    Nice win for Dennis!

  4. I gave gesink all week to make up that 30second gap to take back 5th. It wasnt too much to ask, except it was.  I mean, didn’t he want me to win the vsp? Jeez.

  5. Well, the UCI suddenly seems interested in going after past dopers, just not “Le Big One”.

  6. Mucho Gracias to Alberto Contador and his fingerbang for winning the Vuelta and for dragging me to the top with him.  I just watched the last 50k of today’s stage online and that mountaintop finish was amazing.  Really regretting that i haven’t had more time to watch this years Vuelta but what I have watched has been spectacular.

    A stripped jersey next to my name is awesome as hell too

    For anyone who hasn’t seen it. Imlac had a little moan up on ITV4 highlights, saying it’s un-professional for a team that hasn’t won much. Don’t agree though, looks good team building to me.

  8. @meursault Perhaps they are all available and looking for a new team.

  9. @Tartan1749

    While respective of his talent, I have not been an overall fan of Contador historically.  Got to give it up to El Pequeño Toro as he has attacked at every opportunity and then some.  Honestly, he deserved the win today and congrats to him on the GC as well.  Very exciting Grand Tour.

  10. @Tobin

    Finger Blaster dug deep today, not a big fan but he sure makes this race exciting!

  11. @San Tonio

    Time to break out the Fingerbang Hats yall AC’s gonna murder some legs

  12. To celebrate what should be a 4th place finish in the VSP for me, I went to see the stage in person today.  Here are some pics. Sorry, no podium girls, as I’m not VIP enough to get good access.

  13. @Skip Nice!

  14. The placing haven’t changed since the last update. @San Tonio is a f’ing genius. He must be on the juice to pull this off.

    Let the weeping begin…

  15. @Gianni

    Thank You very much.

    The VSP for the Vuelta has been wildly pleasurable for me. I won the Vuelta VSP by picking the top 4 riders in order and let this show that you can swap riders and be successful. If I hadn’t swapped out De Gendt for Valverde on he first rest day swap I would have earned only 37 points and finished just off the top spot.

  16. Ah Hell!  Call me the Nico Roche of the VSP!  Just hanging on to a top ten spot and doomed to blow it in the home stretch!  May the Gods of Spanish steak be kind to me over the coming  month!
  17. Bertie and his Bovril filled Bidons has fucked my VSP GC standing.

    @San Tonio Chapeau.

    I really enjoyed the Vuelta this year, some great racing.

  18. Señorita, I am sorry for the mess – can I get you a towel?

    LA Dave – I watched the “Call me Maybe” song and dance from Green Edge and wondered why Gerro wasn’t in it. Didn’t realize it was all filmed at the Vuelta…and that Gerro was off winning in Quebec!

    Great finish to today’s stage. It’s truly shocking to see such talented riders dissolve into turning squares like that. Definitely know the pitch was crazy, but they still always seem beyond breaking.

    Nice win for Dennis!

    For anyone who hasn’t seen it. Imlac had a little moan up on ITV4 highlights, saying it’s un-professional for a team that hasn’t won much. Don’t agree though, looks good team building to me.

    Are we still on “CallMeMaybe-gate”? Warning: not cycling-related.

  21. Vuelta 2013 has been announced and it looks like another very lumpy one…be interesting to see how the Schlecks go for it and I wondered why in Bradleys announcement about the Giro the other day he had suddently stopped talking about La Vuelta…

    He has already pegged his colours to the Giro and confirmed Froomedog is number one for the Tour…so who from Sky goes for La Vuelta?  Froome will be tired from the Tour and Wiggo may find it tough against the pure out and out climbers on such a mountainous circuit.

    However the joy will be once again watching them commit suicide on the Angliru!

  23. Just stumbled across this.  It is by no means difinitive, and I have no idea what they are saying but it may shed a little light on the mystery of Berties breakaway and how it was allowed to happen on Stage 17 of the 2012 Vuelta.

    It looks as if he rode from somewhere in the peloton i.e. it was so early in the day neither he nor JR were at the front yet, and JR and Menchov just let him go, not quite knowing why…gutsy move if you ask me and sly as a foxes socks!

    (Anyone speak enough spanish to translate?)
