There was a time when this is what Cycling looked like.

Velominati Super Prestige: Men’s Liege-Bastogne Liege 2017

by / / 117 posts

This guy. This fucking Valverde guy. How can you make it look so easy? Dan Martin was right to look like a little bitch on the podium, because that’s exactly what Valvecap made of him: his little bitch.

What kills me about him is he looks totally awesome, but I can’t find myself liking him. What’s the matter with me? Looking Fantastic is normally all I need. Maybe its because he’s bald. But that hasn’t stopped me before. Chalk it up to the great mysteries of life.

Liege is a race that’s dear to my heart; my dad and I did it together when I was seventeen and it was one of the greatest rides of my life. It’s a great classic, but today’s era of specialization means we rarely see riders contest the cobbled classics as well as the Ardennes classics. Yet, this year we’ve got Greg Van Avermaet lining up after winning Roubaix in the true Hardman style of Eddy Mereckx or Sean Kelly.

So lets make this happen people: I’m voting for GvA, nearly assuring everyone he won’t be anywhere near the podium. Appologies in advance. You know the drill: get the picks in by the time the clock goes to zero. Good luck!

  15. Fucking Malmerde is like every Hollywood actor in the past 10 years. They all look “too good” b/c they are all fucking doping as well–so much H and T in Hollywood these days. They are aesthetically doping but the looks, for the pro cyclist, are the secondary benefit. I hope that Malmerde gets dropped like a bad habit (which means that he’ll pro bably win b/c it seems that no one ever drops a bad habit, eh?) VSP PICKS:
