The Christmas Holiday Quiz

Saturday, 23 December 2017

A Christmas quiz with 40 questions. Some are obvious, some are odd, many can’t be Googled and a few are fiendish.

By all means have a go and there’s a token prize for the winner but some of the questions are posed because the answers should set up some interesting discussion points.

39. The Four Days of Dunkirk actually lasts six days. Name another race with a fictitious label.

40. What was the first ever mountain pass climbed by the Tour de France?

The Prize
This is a quiz rather an email address harvesting attempt hidden behind some facile questions but it’s not easy and nor is typing up all the answers. I don’t expect many to try and answer all 40 questions but if you want to have a go or maybe readers collectively crowdsource their way together, feel free to leave your answers in the comments below and the deadline is midday Euro Time on Wednesday 27 December. As an incentive the winner gets an INRNG supporter caps. The most correct answers wins and if there’s a tie then the first respondent to get there wins.

Too easy for me. Yeah, I think I’m gonna pass this time…

Ecky Thump December 23, 2017 at 12:58 pm

12, Romain Bardet
13, Ronnie Corbett
13, (two, you’ve mis-numbered there IR) Starting place of first ever TdF
26, €100?
27, €60,000
28, two bob and a bag of chips? (won’t be much more, if any minimum at all)
30, Team Sky
32, Tea Bow Pinot (an IR favourite)

All the best Inner Ring and readers / cyclists. Thanks for a lot of laughs, and above all enjoyment.

Thank you for putting this up! It’s been a great researching exercise on a quiet Christmas day. Obviously almost everything has had some level of research put into it, I won’t claim to have known more than a couple off-hand. There’s a few missed answers and a couple I know are wrong, but here goes:

1. Rik van Looy
2. Michael Kolar
3. Bjarne Riis
4. Greg can Avermaet
5. Celebrating a false win
6. Luke Rowe
7. Hammer Series
8. Tour of Beijing
9. Matej Mohoric/Pello Bilbao
10. Mauro Vegni (it’s not, but I haven’t got a better idea)
11. 1972 Paris Nice
12. Romain Bardet and Coryn Rivera
13. Reveil Martin – the starting place of the first tour
14. Why can’t you have a summit finish on a mountain pass? By definition it’s not a summit, but a valley between two summits?
15. Highest World Tour finish – 2,490 Alto Hoya De La Mora (Sierra Nevada/Vuelta a Espana Stage 15)
16. It’s a Pasiega cow on the 28% Los Machucos climb, Stage 17 of the Vuelta a Espana
17. 20
18. France
19. Discovery Channel
20. Jarlinson Pantano, Pierre La Tour, ? (and only three names are actually listed, not four per the question)
21. Donald Trump
22. Tom Dumoulin, Giro d’Italia
23. Only World Tour and HC events
24. Max number of race days per year for a WT rider?
25. Rule 2.6.024 – The starting order of team time trial stages shall be the inverse order of the general team classification, to the exception of the leader’s team which starts last. Where no such classification exists, the starting order shall be determined by drawing lots.
26. ? (max fee for a UCI WT commissaire)
27. €38,115
28. No minimum wage
29. Sunweb: Travel website. Cofidis: Loans (and other financial services). Katusha: Meaningless diminutive of Katherine.
30. Team Sky (GBP31.1M vs USD28.3M for WADA)
31. €7M license fee for the Worlds (Bergen) plus another €8M in running costs, vs £3.5M in Grand Depart bid costs and about £10M in running costs (Yorkshire), vs Dusseldorf (€4.4M in total costs). So the Worlds cost more to buy the license.
32. Thibaut Pinot
33. ?
34. Il Lombardia
35. Phillipe Gilbert
36. ?
37. Domenico Pozzovivo
38. ?
39. Paris-Tours (as it neither goes from Paris or to actually Tours)
40. Depends on the definition of propery, but the Col du Ballon d’Alsace in 1906 was the first officially in the TdF history (ignoring all the “hidden” climbs.)

David M December 23, 2017 at 6:12 pm

Ah nuts – that was me, not an Anon. A last-minute refresh to check if you’d fixed the duplicate-13s took away my details.

tony December 24, 2017 at 7:12 pm

RQS December 27, 2017 at 1:41 pm

Isn’t number 14 the fact that a pass is the lowest point on which you can go over a mountain, while a summit is the highest point on the mountain. So by its very nature you’ll never have a summit finish.

ChuckD December 25, 2017 at 4:44 am

Only one I got (in spite of putting in a full 4 minutes of work, so overwhelmed was I) was #21, only because I was there, and because it so neatly matches our current president’s only skills.

Women’s Individual WorldTour Ranking: Anna VAN DER BREGGEN (DLT) 1 016 points
Women’s Team Ranking: BOELS DOLMANS CYCLING TEAM (DLT) 3 273 points
5. Pibernik was convinced that he had won the 5th stage of the Giro and he lifted his arms as a sign of triumph on the finish line. A problem, there was still one more lap to go…
6. 167th Rowe Luke (SKY) +4:35:5
7. Gree-Tour of Guangxi (CHN)
8. Tour of Qatar (QAT)
9. The Slovenian Matej Mohorič (UAD): 15 537 km in 95 days
10. Urbano Cairo is the Chairman of RCS MediaGroup, Giro d’Italia organizer, and Torino FC. He gives the departure of the stage at Castellania, Fausto Coppi’s birthplace.
11. Paris-Nice 1972. Poulidor did a dubbelslag by winning the final time trial and finishing six seconds ahead of Merckx in the GC.
12. Above: Romain Bardet with his teammates Bastien César and Antoine Caillaud (club Vélo sport brivadois, 2008)
Below: Coryn Rivera (Redlands Classic, 2003)
13. In 1903, the first Tour de France started in front of the café “le Réveil Matin” in Montgeron
14. There wouldn’t be room for the two banners

16. It is the Monument to the Pasiega Cow, a local breed, in Alto de los Machucos, finish line of stage 17 of La Vuelta.

25. The starting order shall be determined by drawing lots.
26. €160
27. €38 115
28. There isn’t a minimum wage
29. Sunweb offers package holidays towards sun, winter sport and self-drive destinations
Cofidis (COmpagnie FInancière de DIStribution) is specialized in the consumer credit business.
I think a civilian can’t buy legally one Katusha. This is a multiple rocket launcher built by the Soviet Union in World War II
30. Sky. For 2016 Sky’s budget was £31,048,000 and WADA’s was USD 28,309,373
31. The budget of hosting the first three stages of Giro 2017 is set to reach an estimated €12 million. The initial budget for the Bergen 2017 world championships was approximately €16.7 million but ending up forking out €23.6m. So, the world championship will cost more

I thought 3 was Thevenet. Impossible to distinguish if it’s Guimard or Thevenet from the face. But the yellow gersey in the bag looks to be a Renault gersey. It’s got to be Guimard
