Velominati Super Prestige: Womens Amstel Gold Race 2017

It’s funny how national borders seem to disappear when it comes to bike racing. The Netherlands and Belgium have had a long-lasting sibling rivalry, and I’m sure Belgium has held a similar rivalry with France. Yet when it comes to the Classics, it seems Belgium happily lays claim to the northern bit of France as well as the monkey’s tail of The Netherlands.

And, while the French Belgians haven’t yet added a Women’s Paris-Roubaix, the Dutch Belgians have, and it this year it sets the stage for a guns-a-blazing finale over the Cauberg into Maastricht.

The women’s classics season so far has not been terribly predictable, and I don’t expect that to change on Sunday. So prognosticate on the start list, get your picks in by the time the countdown timer becomes a donut, and good luck!
