Velominati Super Prestige: Amstel Gold 2016

Ooooof! The VSP generator and operators need more than a week to recover from that race. Tommeke may never recover, that chance will never come again.

We now move into the Netherlands and the first of three Ardennes races. Whomever did well in Paris-Roubaix probably won’t like all the hills in Amstel. Same with the beer but I’ll leave that beery subject alone this year.

PhilGil has been busy fighting drunk drivers (He Badger’d him!) and is now off the start list then again he is back on as of Wednesday. Sure, the police pay attention when the cyclist in the altercation is Philippe Gilbert, ffs. Matt Hayman and Tony Martin are on the list, ouch, no rest there. So rest, recover, don’t spare the malted rehydrating beverage. No Delgados please.

    This race has Lotto Soudal written all over it. The problem is the squad they’re bringing. Three or four of those guys could be the winner.

    You’re playing with my head.

  4. Just watched the 1993 Amstel Gold Race on youtube.  Gewiss, the EPO pioneers, dominated every aspect of the race. The commentator attributed the performance to the new titanium DeRosa bikes. Too funny.

    Awesome!  how was it?  Really crowded?  Were you able to go at your own pace and not be stuck with huge crowds of other riders, etc?  Really wondering as I plan on doing as many of these in the next few years as possible.
