Velominati Super Prestige: Women’s Ronde Van Vlaanderen 2015

by / / 118 posts

The Keepers Tour 2015 riders will be watching both the men’s and women’s Rondes on Sunday. When the women go storming by it is just as impressive as when the men do. Our boys will be knee deep in Malteni beer and frites as they spectate. The Malteni will be some much need recovery beverage after today’s Roubaix rattle-fest.

This is the direction women’s racing should be going: use the same course and infrastructure as the men’s race, the same day, the same potential coverage. A women’s Paris-Roubaix and a women’s L-B-L, those would be a races too.

Here is the start list. Remember that picking the women’s winner is worth just as many points toward that steel frame as the men’s so who is going to beat Lizzy Armitstead? That is my question. She is turning into an all around ass-kicker. Don’t Delgado and make your picks with a pure heart and a buzzing brain.

  41. Wow, Top 10. I’m actually amazed.

  42. I can’t wait to see the race – sounds like Longo Borghini went solo with about 30kms to go for a brilliant and bold win.

  43. I’m fully stunned at picking the winner and 1 other rider in the top 5. However, I’m more surprised to see that @universio is also being scored with 8 points, while only having picked one rider in the top 5 as best I can tell.

    Please someone double-check me to be sure I’m not being a twit. I love this game either way.

  45. Ah yes! I see that you modified your picks from post 24 (the one that I was referring to). It would appear that your crystal ball was more finely tuned for post 39. Well done!

  46. Some photos from the race yesterday:

    Longo crushing it

    This machine kills cobbles.

  47. I believe that I am short one point…

  48. @Jay

    check how each of your picks was mapped by clicking on the down arrow next to the name. If one was wrong, click the dispute button & explain what it should have been.

  49. @Jay

    I believe that I am short one point…

    Given ” the keepers” are having a phat of a time cobbling, it may take a while to rectify.

  50. On the Kwaremont, the V Flag at 17:18.
