# Velominati Super Prestige: GP de Plouay-Bretagne 2014

First run in 2002, the GP de Plouay-Bretagne is part of the women’s UCI World Cup series. It’s 4.5 laps totaling 121km. As usual, there is little information or publicity for yet another women’s UCI race. Here is a start list. Here is the official French website. And yes, Ms. Vos won the last two editions. We regret the lack of a write up for this race but we are frustrated by the lack of basic publicity. True, there is a Grand Tour going on and it’s a Tour with a stellar line up but shouldn’t the UCI whip up some excitement for a race in their World Cup?

Do not Delgado, the betting window closes Friday night, Pacific coast time, USA. Don’t ask why.

Armitstead’s already won the World Cup overall with a race to spare but she’s not been off the podium much at all and will want to continue that. Vos is the boss and will make a point that had she done the whole WC, the title would have been hers. Or something like that.

And you wonder why women’s racing struggles when the UCI diss it so. Hopefully Cookson is still finding his feet at UCI HQ and that sooner rather than later he’ll get his shit together and realize (like the commercial bike and clothing manufacturers) that the women’s market could be huge but needs support at the highest level.

You have one of the greatest female athletes of all fucking time at the top of her game (Vos) and you (the UCI) are letting a golden motivator for your sport go to waste. Seriously, the UCI are as fucking incompetent at the US Congress and that takes some doing.

@Julian Winn

Thanks. That is the best information yet, sorry I missed that. And yes to TV coverage, it’s the only way people will get how good the women’s races are.

One could do worse than just picking the first five of the Rabo squad.

Aaah….a week in deep dark Wales has handed me my second Delgado of the season. My only consollation is that I was on a bike riding!

@LeoTea takes the Ladies GP de Plouay, nice one mate!

@piwakawaka It was a great race.

You beat me to posting the video link!

Ride on.

Julian

@Julian Winn everyone should at least click the UCI link to the race even if you don’t watch it, just to support the women.

@Julian Winn

Julian Winn? Julian Winn?

@frank Have to admit, that was a total guess. Figured Lizzie might want to celebrate with a win, so stuck Vos in second. Had no clue about the other places. Couldn’t even find a link to the course profile, so didn’t know if it suited a sprinter like van der Breggen or Kirsten Wild.

Stuck Tiffany Cromwell in 5th based purely on name recognition. Then saw her crop up on serveral other lists. Wasn’t sure if I had made a lucky guess, or if others were simply looking to see what the early entrants had picked (which I’ve never, ever done for any of the ladies VSP events…..)

But hey, a win is a win is a win.

Delgado. This is a terrible VSP season for me.

@frank

Damn! Pipped on the line by the width of a tire!
