# Velominati Super Prestige: Grand Prix de Plouay-Bretagne 2013

Brittany is the kind of area that produces strong-minded and strong-bodied people; I’m looking at you, Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault. It produces this type of person because that’s what windy farming land does to people. Brittany is also lumped full of short, steep hills, and we all know what that means: its a perfect place for a bike race.

The next installment of the Velominati Super Prestige is the Pro VVomen’s event of the larger Grand Prix Cycliste de Plouay. This is a route for a hardwoman who has some climbing punch. Vos is racing, which basically means that the one person who doesn’t pick her will win the event should she fail to cross the line first. But how likely is that? She is a monster of a racing machine, perhaps the most well-rounded racing Cyclist ever.

Check the start list, and roll the dice. Get your picks in by midnight on the 30th. Good luck.

I find that as the season progresses I am actually becoming less excited about womens cycling. Why? Because you cannot ever find out much about it. The races are not televised, there is very very little on the internet in terms of views or discussion (unless I am missing some magical website) so what are we left with?

A start list and a result with little or nothing in between. I would love to get more in to womens cycling but the fact of the matter is with so little publicity even the most enthusiastic fan is struggling to get engaged in this.

I can really understand why they feel so neglected!

Hoping Elisa Longo Borghini is back on form after her injury.

Pro Women’s Cycling: her take on the race, with clips of previous years and how to possibly stream the race on Saturday.
