Test your cycling knowledge.......

Very nicely done. Great idea.

I got most of them right but missed a few of the riders from the 90's and spent 2 minutes typing variations of "Andy Schleck" into "Mr no chain" until i gave up.

I never realised i was misspelling so many riders. Pettachi. Salvodeli. Vandenbrouke. Cipolini. All wrong i now know.


And i gave up on the tashkant terror even though i knew who he was.

Finaly Elphantino has a better nickname;)


Edit: Hooray 13 out of 20 based on Spanish maiden names.
 
61/84- i completely forgot to attempt the dauphinie and spent time trying to spell Izagirre/ Peraud/ Kwiatowski and Chaves- cost me 7 points.

Good tests, thanks!

71 for the cq rankings- some real easy ones such as Kelderman, Mollema, Bos, Slagter and Wellens forgotten.

What do you remember of last season? ;)

Top 100 riders of the CQ Ranking 2014

It looks easy on paper, but I bet you will forget some riders.

Again, I don't think you get 100% on this quiz. Do you remember for instance who was second in Plouay?

Only 57/100. :(
Me and my stupid american vocabulary. There was probably another 20 that I knew but just couldn't spell. I'm so use to either doing a quick look up or just using their names abbreviated....

yes, if I could spell or spell faster it would help a lot. however, as many ways as I tried to spell basque names i still get them wrong - intxausti and izaguirre...even some german surnames give me a problem, nevermind getting navardauskas right in a hurry or belgian/dutch names. eastern european names for some reason are not as hard and italian/regular spanish names are easiest next to english. i speak some french - that helped.

anyway, that was fun. 72/100 was better than I thought i'd do.

figured the podium quiz might be easier after the top 100 - will see.

that really was fun. glad to have that site sporcle - thanks :)
it helped me to take the top 100 rankings quiz first and refresh my spelling...
then on the podium quiz: 74/84.

lots more fun than some other threads this time of year ;)

That post was from 2011.

The easy team-rider quiz is from 2011, look at which riders are listed together as being on what teams.
yeah. i tried that easy one and got 12/30 :eek:

this is a nice peaceful thread to escape to ....also the cafe - music thread :)
 
275 out of 300 stage wins- very bad with some of the smaller riders and didn't know 2010 that well but I had only 6 that i didn't know so i was quite lucky. I got all of 2014 correct :)
Not enough time to spend on the 2012/13 Giro though:(

116/150 for the CQ from 1999- 2013- stupidly forgot that Porte had a great 2013. Didn't consider Rebellin at all. Also i forgot about Greipel. Also i'd spelt Ullrich wrong so should get an extra 3.
