Velominati Super Prestige: Giro Rosa 2015

Damn. Was I not just raving about this a year ago? Why start a major women’s race in Italy when the TDF is firing up right over there in France or the Netherlands? Actually it was more like 363 days ago as we are late as hell getting to the Giro Rosa VSP. You see, another reason not to start this and the Tour so close together, FFS.

We are going to do something crazy. We will leave the betting window open until 5am pacific something time on Sunday even though a prologue will happen on Friday. Think of it as a rest day swap without the penalty for those amoral enough to engage in such low practices.

This is probably the biggest race on the women’s calendar, and the women’s races seem to be where the differences in the VSP overall are made. And that difference is going towards amazing prizes for the overall including a Jaegher frame and a Café Roubaix wheelset. There is plenty of time for you to Delgado this thing, too, if you wait around until the last minute. So my advice is that you avoid doing that.

This is a Vos-less race, deal with it. Here is the start list.

  9. May I petition the Keepers to add the Women’s Tour [of Britain] to the VSP schedule next year? It was a few weeks back now, and my word was it a good race! Plus the ITV coverage was co-hosted by Vossy herself—she is a cool lady!

    And yes, I totally agree with Gianni, the idea of organising the biggest women’s race of the year to coincide with the world’s largest annual sporting event is such BS. It’s almost as if they don’t WANT women’s cycling to be popular.

    So you don’t have the same money deal with Gianni where he tells you who to pick and then sorts it out in the software later?  I think I’m being two-timed!

  31. No Vos? Meh, I’d have picked Lizzie ‘sur la plaque, fucktards’ Armitstead anyway, based on her performance last Sunday. Here she is on Michaelgate, wearing her five face and fifty-three.

    @The Engine

    Yes! You get a signed Team GB jersey worn by Emma Pooley to wear as a sock in your next race.

    Arf, Arf – Actually I’ve just noticed that I don’t have a KT 2015 badge either. It’s some sort of conspiracy.

  34. I wish there was more coverage of this race. It was definitely over shadowed by Le Tour. Scrolling all the way down on CN to see results seemed odd. It was too far away.

  35. Well I won’t be winning this one either…

    Final results:

    Van der Breggen

    Abbott

    Guarnier

    Moolman

    Niewiadoma

  36. Haaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaaaaaa. [en français] Null points!

    Literally the lowest of anyone.
