There's an unofficial, almost-complete startlist on Cycling Fever if anyone wants to start mulling it over, but not seen anything official yet...

Not come across this race before, another reason to say thanks to Gkam and the rest for running this as I'm really enjoying learning more about women's racing. Found this link for the profile, which looks very flat (scroll down to the bottom). Mooleur - does that sound about right?

Looks like there is a 3-day stage race starting tomorrow, and last year a few of the riders that did well in that went on to get a good result in the World Cup race. No Tour of Britain last year though.

And on the CF startlist - no Orica or Rabo - is that likely to be right?

Yep yep that's the ticket, it's an out and out sprinters race, podiums include Ina Yoko Teutenberg (who will be missed this year! She's retired) - and Giorgia Bronzini (my fav ever sprinter by miles!)

Interestingly Lucy Garner made a podium in last years stage race (theres a stage race and also a one dayer) - if she's riding it (sorry not checked list yet), her recent form in the women's tour will make for an interesting performance from her.

It's an exciting one despite the parcours looking relatively flat/uneventful. It's also a big player in the world cup and the likes of Vos will be gunning for it for points.

Note Rabo and Orica aren't on there yet but I'd keep an eye on that to be honest, also check out podiumcafe and prowomenscycling to see if there's any mentions of big team movements too.

That's the one Chris, like a kids drawing of a dagger  1

There is the three day stage race and I think the line up will be almost identical, because of the location, you don't go bringing many spare riders, so I should get that all sorted out shortly.

Yes at first glance of the profile I thought it looked like a Roma Maxima or something, until I realised the scale!

My knowledge of women's sprinting is exactly the three you mention Mooleur - Bronzini I knew about, Garner I'd noticed do well this week, and you always pick Vos if she's riding, regardless of terrain! Beyond that I'm fairly clueless, but have looked at the results from the last couple of years, and will watch the results of the next three days with interest...

It seems like Orica aren't taking part in this race, no news on Rabo.

Still struggling with startlists because of the Chinese language, but should have a complete one just shortly.

I am very confused. As our race starts on 17th May, and this tour is actually on at present from the 14th to 16th and no stages matching dist?

This is the startlist, for your research.

I am loading it, but there are alot of new riders and teams to be put in.

Don't think Lucy Garner is racing. Her team mate, Kirsten Wild is about all you need to know when it comes to this race. She's had excellent form all season and can get over some climbs, though there are none here. She won the first two stages of the stage race.
Same team as Kittel and as successful as him too.

Watch someone else go and win now.

It was a shame Giant-Shimano weren't in the Women's Tour. Wild would have given Vos a good battle in the sprints.

Bronzini just won stage 3 ahead of Wild! Today's top 5 are all in my team for Sunday, which is encouraging...

Mmm ... this Tour of Chongming WWC race seems to have started already and be almost over. Yet Fantasy lockout doesn't occur for another few hours.

Is the timing for this stuffed?

Race is actually over already. Think someone got the start time or timezone wrong for this one and set Fantasy lockout time and warnings too late. But also suspect getting accurate and complete pre-start info about women's races is a problem.

Same happened to me.

Then the list came back and there were about 4 hours to deadline.

Went back in about ten minutes later. The race was closed!

No team for me in this one.  7

Oh well, back out to clean the bike.  1

Yeh I have the top 3 too.

Did my team for this yesterday.

I think the startlist was fine Nix from what I can gather.

Just seems like a wrong deadline issue to me

Yes agree, my point was about getting start time and time zone info (not the rider startlist).

And I doubt I have anyone. I went to select my teams only to find the deadline moved by hours. Are we really going to score this one?

Picked my team yesterday, now see that all my riders are grayed out.

Incidentally, Sunday's Tour of California stage appears to start an hour before the window closes.
