It's a sprint stage, so to pass seven minutes, here's a quiz. Can you name the 20 current riders who have won stages in all three Grand Tours

    13 for me which is below average apparently.

    Same for me...

    I was about to list the ones I didn't get. Doh! :D

    If the question is "Can you name... Etc." then the answer is no, and I win.

    The averages on Sporcle are messed up as people will keep trying until they get them all right.

    I did a few cycling quizzes on there in the past and noticed Rich had created them.

    A feeble 12. There were a couple I can't believe I didn't get.

    Somehow managed 16, after spending ages thinking I was misspelling one of the 2020 riders I discovered I'd missed what should have been an easy one. The other 3 were a bit tougher but really should have got them.

    Average apparently now... We have obviously skewed it.

    I got the top 5 quite easily, then I was pretty much just naming cyclists as they popped into my head. If I had kept going for longer I would probably have got there just by process of elimination (it's not like I haven't heard of any of them)

    Excellent, if everyone could keep up the good work, I could be above average soon.

    How about another quiz for the weekend. Name the countries that have had a Yellow Jersey wearer

    21/25. I wasted a fair amount of time on the assumption that a certain rider must have worn yellow at some point and thinking I must have misspelled the country.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 10,441
    22. Below average again. Usually quite good at naming countries though.
  • andypandyp Posts: 8,239
    All 25 but it took me far too long to get one, even though I knew who'd won the Tour that year and I hadn't put his country in.

    20, I missed an absolute sitter and another where I can now remember them talking about it being the first yellow jersey for the country.

    Edit - to make matters worse I've actually spent an afternoon riding and chatting with the person responsible for one of the answers I missed!
