Velominati Super Prestige: Grand Prix de Plouay-Bretagne 2013

Velominati Super Prestige: Grand Prix de Plouay-Bretagne 2013

by / / 71 posts

Brittany is the kind of area that produces strong-minded and strong-bodied people; I’m looking at you, Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault. It produces this type of person because that’s what windy farming land does to people. Brittany is also lumped full of short, steep hills, and we all know what that means: its a perfect place for a bike race.

The next installment of the Velominati Super Prestige is the Pro VVomen’s event of the larger Grand Prix Cycliste de Plouay. This is a route for a hardwoman who has some climbing punch. Vos is racing, which basically means that the one person who doesn’t pick her will win the event should she fail to cross the line first. But how likely is that? She is a monster of a racing machine, perhaps the most well-rounded racing Cyclist ever.

Check the start list, and roll the dice. Get your picks in by midnight on the 30th. Good luck.

  9. I find that as the season progresses I am actually becoming less excited about womens cycling. Why? Because you cannot ever find out much about it. The races are not televised, there is very very little on the internet in terms of views or discussion (unless I am missing some magical website) so what are we left with? A start list and a result with little or nothing in between. I would love to get more in to womens cycling but the fact of the matter is with so little publicity even the most enthusiastic fan is struggling to get engaged in this. I can really understand why they feel so neglected! VSP PICKS: 1. Van Dijk Chick 2. De Vries 3. Borghini 4. The Voss Boss 5. Even Stevens

  31. @Chica It is said to be showing on France 3 and possibly streamed on France 3 Bretagne. There is also a site Plouay TV: http://www.plouay-tv.fr/ which could be a source. expectations are low.

    Well, you still won, nevertheless! I think this makes you the first woman to win a VVomen’s VSP. Good work! @xyxax Thanks.

  40. @xyxax Good for Canuel (a fortnight late, if you ask me: I picked her for the Tour Féminine…). I had Van de Breggen 4th and Johansson 5th (Vos 1st): curse this order thing.

    Canuel was not at all on my radar. I do admit to almost putting in Van Der Breggen based on your selection of her. Never doubt The Professor. Should be a rule.

    Are you outing yourself as a wheel sucker? Following my selection and then being light years ahead of me in the overall? Sounds like I’m doing all the work and you’re just popping around me on the final straightaway for the win and the glory…

  43. @Steampunk Well, yes, I suppose I am, if you want to be vulgar about it. I much prefer the more maternal “wheel nursing.” OTOH, it would imply that you had been ahead of me at least briefly. BOOM!
