I'm really bad at quizzes, i had to think for a minute to come up with the name of Ballan :confused:. Winner of RVV, riding for Lampre, Cunego second, Breschel third ... but what was that guy's name again. I have a photographic memory (i hope) :p.
I had a similar with the 1997 winner. Could picture him in at least three teams but could not remember his name within the 15 minute limit. Only one I missed since 1991, but overall score still less than 50:eek:
 
I took a few of the tests today and I didn't fail miserably. I'm going to give my score and impressions on the different tests so if you want to avoid spoilers, I suggest you don't read the rest of this post.

15/15 also. Would have been more fun without the nationalities to help.

57/80. Really disappointed that I missed a few I really shouldn't have (eg : Coppi :eek:).


Concerning the last series of tests that pigoonse posted :
34/50 for the sprinters. I missed a few obvious one. The "ATM" in the title can be a bit confusing since a couple of the sprinters haven't performed in years. Also, how can Spilak make the list and not Boonen, it makes no sense :D My advice, don't be afraid to go for punchy riders that can also sprint.

For the cols, I got 12/24 including all those the TDF has ridden at least 40 times. Clearly, the hardest test of the list.

143 out of 150 for the cq one. I guess I spend too much time on cq building fantasy teams :p I'm happy I got the one that the most people forget.

For the classics, I scored 8/9 but I just missed the last one because whatever I tried I couldn't get the spelling right.

Maybe it's time to test our cycling knowledge again in the off season! :cool:

What do you remember of last season? ;)

Top 100 riders of the CQ Ranking 2014
http://www.sporcle.com/games/HeiligeGraal/cq-ranking-2014-cycling

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

2014 Cycling Podiums

Again, I don't think you get 100% on this quiz. Do you remember for instance who was second in Plouay?
Sorry for a little bump, but I wanted to share again this game.

The same as last year, only now for the 2015 CQ Ranking: http://www.sporcle.com/games/HeiligeGraal/cq-ranking-2015-cycling! Again some riders you'll easily forget. :)

This was tough! I got 86/100. I balked when it was a slate of "LTS/BEL", "LAM/ITA" and "MOV/SPA" riders staring me down. Thanks for bumping this, these games are fun.

edit: and 53/80 on the rainbow jersey one... man there are some obscure guys that won that race!

I love cycling!
I have been cycling for many years.
But, I'm sorry I'm unaware of so many professional cyclists but only a few! I'm failed! :(
 
It's just about having fun.

Here are a few others.

(Okay, this is just as much a geography knowdledge quiz. It's one thing to know there are Eritrean riders on the WT, if you can't find Eritrea on the map it doesn't help much...)

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:
