Right, this isn't a link to a fancy quiz, but a simple trivia question.

What does Paris-Nice, Tour de Romandie, Tour of California, Tour de France, and the BinckBank Tour have in common this year?
Aka The Ginger One.

Now that was hard. 43% here. I even missed a winner (Wallays).

74, a couple of mis-spellings, highest I missed was number 33 in the ranking.

I missed that one too, and I struggled with the Spanish Movistar riders. :Neutral:

Stybar 2nd in Paris Roubaix was the most forgettable, I guess because it can from a group

I think Liege was more forgettable. A shame really that Gerrans was too old and had a poor season. He would have fitted right in in that horrible edition.

72, but I missed some I shouldn't have. (Alaphilippe, Majka, Barguil, Dennis, Thomas, Dillier etc.)
Highest I missed was Teuns at 38.
I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

I guess I'm a bit late at answering this (I hadn't seen that my quizzes had been promoted here before just now - and what is 15 months on this part of the forum anyway?), but no I don't think it'll work anymore since the WorldTour has become too big for the 300 maximum answers allowed. Additionally, someone copied the idea and made a running quiz for 2017 with the only difference being that you should only name top 3s in the one-day races.

So I don't feel like it's worth it.

BUT! I'm currently making an alternative quiz for the 2018 Tour de France which I plan to copy for many Grand Tours going back in time. I think the nation/team clue has gone a bit stale, so this will be with different hints and random questions.

ETA this evening or early next week. I'll post it here when it's done.

By the way, I also made quizzes for 2010 and 2009 but they're called World Ranking instead of WorldTour.

As advertised above (though, noone has probably seen it yet), I have made a new type of quiz. I think it's more fun than the usual quizzes but am obviously biased.

Try it out and feel free to give feedback.

Ha, I played it yesterday but didn't make the connection to you. It's a good quiz with a nice little twist. Just way too hard for me considering I didn't get to watch a single stage.

Yeah, that was a tough one! Especially when you only remember overall facts - stage winners and jersey wearers - not various details.
