It's essential. Are you the new supervisor here?

That seems like a pretty minor fail to me, 1 out of 4 guys being wrong, another guessing right but having 2 guesses. Certainly more memory retention than I'd normally give athletes credit for...

IT is flat out ridiclous that they don't know these things sorry.
I ve lost any respect for them.
Sadly it somehow just shows what the haters always say. Cyclists are the biggest retards among any sportsmen

I'm kind of surprised that they didn't know that but I suppose if you asked track sprinters about Carl Lewis and Ben Johnson today, they would not know much either. Sadly history seems to be coming less and less relevant to many people.

Well our boys dont really know much about Rasmussen Vino and Lance. " it was 15 years ago". Bolt would probably say that Lewis and Johnson competed in the original olympic games.

Amazing when you consider that with "Google and Wikipedia" around, most general answers can be available in a second, even while crossing the street. Problably most of the fans should stop chewing gum so they have enough intellect to inquire about history

I wonder what stage will ASO pick to preview in Criterium du Dauphine.
This year it was stage to Rumilly with Le Grand Colombier and Col de Richemond. In 2011 was the itt in Grenoble.
I don't think it will be the Alpe d' Huez stage.
One of the other three Alpine stages (including the second itt) is more likely.
The itt should attract stronger field than presentation of Semnoz.
There's a place for both, in my opinion.

Using the Dauphine as a preview for a Tour stage sucks IMO. Can't we go back to when it was a race in it's own right rather than a tame route with a couple of recces for the Tour?
