Velominati Super Prestige: Women’s Ronde van Vlaanderen 2012

Oenone Wood rocks up the Kapelmuur

The Velominati Super-Prestige continues with our second Women’s event of 2012, the Women’s Ronde van Vlaanderen. This one is made even more exciting for me by the fact that I now have some small connection to the Women’s Tibco Racing Team, as I watched with envy as they each pulled their bikes off the oversized baggage carrousel in Schiphol. Classy girls, each of them; they were really having a good time laughing in the giggly kind of way you can only understand if you’ve ever been jet lagged.

Sadly, this gives me no insight whatsoever into who might or might not be within a chance of winning the event, or placing in the top V. But be that as it may, get your VSP picks in by the time the countdown counter drops to zero for a chance to win the Women’s VSP. Winner of this VSP event will earn the right to comment all year with the Leeuw van Vlaanderen commenting badge. We will also forgo the usual Symbol Pack prize awarded to a Monument and award the winner a copy of the local newspaper the day after the race.

    The points tally for the women must not be right. I had two of the top 5 picked but I didn’t get any points. Maybe I don’t understand the point system?? dancollins

  10. WOW! Did I just get my ass handed to me by the Women’s race or what?!?! Guess I need to do a bit more research before the next one!

  11. Arrgghh, only one in the top 5 adn my pick of Armstrong was a complete, “oh what the hell…”

    As a Canadian, I feel like a complete tool for not picking Joelle. But she did us proud, if I didn’t

  12. Disputing: Picked Arndt in top five, no points. Have fun sorting it from the tour, or leave it ’til you get back.

  13. Interesting that despite picking Judith Arndt in top spot I’m only getting one point for having Armstrong in the top 5…has the VSP scoring been on the Tripels as well?

  14. @Blah

    Ditto here. Picked Arndt in top 5 – that gets me a point, non?

    Oui.

  16. @RedRanger
    probably depends if anyone else put Arndt on the top spot & has more than one other point…plus I can’t post with both the MSR badge & the ladies’ RVV one so you might get to keep the pink.

  17. Don’t tell me what you’re missing in the comments. That’s what the dispute mechanism is for, use it please.

    For those of you who did dispute your picks, they should be fixed. I’m not going through the comments and trying to figure out from that which of you are missing points, FYI.

  18. @Marcus

    ermmm…dispute mechanism? How do I do that then? I looked all over but I am a bit bloody useless with computer stuff..

  19. @RedRanger

    @Mikael Liddy
    Then the win should go to you since you put that pick in before me. Congrats.

    Looks like you’re still keeping the pink lion, congrats.

    To be honest I wouldn’t really want a Schleck-esque win after the event when the winner on the day has already had the jersey presented. That & I like my little Italian symbol.

  20. Also had Wild in 4th but no points awarded – one for when you get back from the KT I think!

  21. @paolo
    Dispute mechanism? Really? Or is this April Fools joke. Not that Frank needs to be worried a point while on the KT.

  22. Dispute mechanism?

    I like to let the race organizers do their job and let the results sit as posted. If you get moved up because somebody was relagated for not keeping their line on the bunch sprint, so be it. But complaining about a result seems so unV to me…

    Suck it up and get on with the next race, pumpkin.

  23. @draffenator

    Tiz no joke. If I can find it even a one eyed pig with no sense of smell can find it. However if you send me a picture of a five dollar bill I will tell all! Not a fake picture either a real picture…
