The women's World Championship road race is going to be terrific anyway, but the awesome sauce on top is that it's going to decide, once and for all, the 2012 edition of the Bliss vs. Moos FSA DS rivalry!
Will Team Chamois Full of Bliss, led by the incredible Marianne Vos, ride into a blissful sunset? Or will the Lady Moos, captained by Judith Arndt--who's already won one rainbow this week--hoof their way to a come-from-behind victory?
Current standings: Bliss 14980-Moos 14381
Yes, just 599 points separate the teams...in a race where 2605 points will be awarded. Each team is sending 10 riders to battle for booty:
Chamois Full of Bliss: Adrie Visser, Alexandra Burchenkova, Charlotte Becker, Claudia Hausler, Julia Martisova, Katie Colclough, Loes Gunnewijk, Marianne Vos, Pauline Ferrand-Prevot*, Sara Mustonen
Lady Moos: Ashleigh Moolman, Emilia Fahlin, Judith Arndt, Kirsten Wild, Liesbet De Vocht, Lucinda Brand, Noemi Cantele, Pauline Ferrand-Prevot*, Shelley Olds, Tatiana Guderzo
Commence nail-biting now!
