*The 2017 Il Lombardia was a road cycling one-day race that took place on 7 October. It was the 111th edition of the Il Lombardia and the 36th event of the 2017 UCI World Tour.[1] It was won for the second time by Vincenzo Nibali.[2] The race was marred by several severe accidents, all on the fast and technical descent of the Sormano hill. Laurens De Plus (Quick-Step Floors) suffered a small fracture to his right knee when he was launched over the guardrail and fell into a ravine.[3] Jan Bakelants (AG2R La Mondiale) remained hospitalised in Como with seven broken ribs and two fractures to his spine. Simone Petilli (UAE Team Emirates) was diagnosed after his crash at the same site with two back fractures, a broken collarbone and shoulder blade.

    32. Was it something like col de la mont Bonnet?
    Don’t know the height exactly and refusing to google so my guess is 2,890m

    Polka dot took a flyer off a bend on the descent.

    40 is going to be a combo of Vos, Brand & Ceylan Alvarado....

    Do we need the order?

  • 5. I've seen the answer judged correct, but many people would say 46 because the first two are before Trafoi, where the climb really begins

    14. I've seen the answer judged correct but wasn't Lemond in yellow the day he and Hinault crossed the line together. If Hinault, not Lemond, was given that win, then it was Armstrong (until his win was deleted), and only then Thomas

    16. Eric Helden changed from speed-skating to cycling but he wasn't then ever a world champion, so perhaps a woman who changed from skating to cycling?

    18. Agree with RichN95 (Chris Horner, 41 years old), although I'd guess the year was 2012, not 2013

    23. Somewhere over the Atlantic during the 1970s

    25. I've seen the answer judged correct, but I've never heard of Lemond ever doing competitive skiing, but hey, maybe he did

    26. Like RichN95, I was going to suggest Rominger as one of the three, but Rominger's name isn't in the so-far correct answers, so I'll go with Zulle, Jalabert and (as substitute for Rominger), Roglic

    34. Didi Senft

    37. Duclos-Lasalle in a 1990s Paris-Roubaix

    16 - v.d. Breggan then? I think she's from the skating heartland of the heartland...

    26 - In fairness I think Pinno means schoolboy or college level rather than as a pro. We could add Taylor Phinney but maybe that would make it too easy. (And a few more if we count XC Ski)

    16. No, it's clear and unequivocal answer.
    23. No.
    26. Rominger and Zulle... leaves 1 other.
    34 Correct.
    37. Correct.

    Cime de la Bonette. Actually the road is 2802m. I've got the photo to prove it.

    First parallelogram was the Gran Sport I think, before that it was the Cambio Corsa… so that would be around 1950… let’s say 1951?

    But does that include the random loop they added to the road just to make it higher though?

    I remember the climb as it was quite stunning and the descent was interesting.

    Yes. The col is 2715m the road around the Cime 2802m, and the peak of the Cime 2680m.

    You missed a trick if you didn't do the descent/climb the other side too. Nearly everyone does just the one side, but the other side is fantastic too.

    16 I would have gone with Eric Heiden first, knowing he had good pedigree in skating but not sure he ever did any track. So I second the opinion it's likely to be a woman so will go with Marianne Vos.
