Question the person below and answer the question above

so with the road season over after basso's fine win in Japan, let's have some fun of sorts with this thread I have plagiarised from another forum that I am on

The idea is that you answer the question in the previous post and then ask your own question. then this goes on endlessly until everyone get's bored, hopefully not before Het Volk/Nieuwsblad Very Happy

so the first question:

Who will go sec ond (as this is the first question)
Slapshot 3

Slapshot 3 .....

Slapshot 3

Alex Stieda

Which berg has been used most in the tour of flanders??
gerry12ie

That's a tickler, SS!
Fontfroide

Just guessing.

Muur Kappelmuur.  But I am going to bed now, and if I am right, will ask a question when I get up.  

OK if I am right.

According to today's l'Equipe, which two riders would have won the most Tours if "they" (UCI, ASO, "someone") went down the standings and eliminated anyone involved in doping.  This is during the Armstrong years, 1999-2005.  I know this is not going to happen, but if they did, which two riders would have won two Tours each.

If I didn't get the answer right, then forget this question.
Fontfroide

So I woke up and no one had an answer to the question Slapshot posed. What happens now?  Does he get to pose another question?

The correct answer to my question is Escartin and Azevedo.  According to l'Equipe.  

I have no better answer to Slapshot than the one I gave.
gerry12ie

FF - I don't think it is Kappelmuur.  I'll take a stab at Kluisberg though, but I won't ask a question 'cos I'm not sure the answer is right.  Neither am I sure if Slapshot is counting Kwaremont/Oude Kwaremont as distinct bergs...

Luckily, you answered your own question so does that mean you go again?
Fontfroide

No it just means that I tried an answer, but got no response, So I thought I would withdraw rather than block the queue for answering.  I will try again.  I really was just guessing and I guessed wrongly, I suppose.

Thats what my info says........ need a Question Mr S
Fontfroide

I keep waiting for Mr. S to give a question, I can't wait any more as I just found a fairly good one.

Maybe.

Which rider rode the Tour for the last time in 1925 at the age of 40 and what TWO parts of the bike are forever linked to his name?
kathy

Fontfroide, having cheated a bit and found a list of riders in the 1925 Tour, I can see two possibities, but according to Wiki, neither could have been 40 that year!

Edit - OK, this is intriguing me.  What part of a bike is a Félix?  I know the other bit!
Bartali

Christophe - toe clips and straps?
Fontfroide

Christophe is right.
Toe clips is right.

But I have to insist that it is another part of the bike which will stay linked with us forever.  But it is true I forgot the toe straps.  So technically Bartali is right.

He can ask the next question.

The answer I was looking for is Forks.  I like that better than toe straps.  Over to you Bartali.
kathy

So even though Sellier is connected with a bike, Felix is not Laughing

I've never heard of Christophe toe-straps, although everyone who has ever listened to David Duffield knows the story of the forks off by heart!!

There was another Tour fact related to Chistophe that I'm a bit surprised you didn't ask with your question. (Altough Thys disputes the fact). Smile

Perhaps I am the only one who has no idea what you are talking about.  I guess age is setting in.  Sense of humour lost.  And what with the pst Berck made, I find myself puzzled and feel more disconnected than ever.

Well, I thought you were having a French joke with us.  Felix Sellier rode in that race, and 'sellier' is the French word for a saddle-maker.
Slapshot 3

Okay.....as this has gotten off track....next question!!

What year was Alpe D'huez FIRST used in Le Tour and who won?? (easy peasy this one)

Answer followed by a question please!!
gerry12ie

1952 - Coppi

What specifically links the following:

Paris July 1964
Orleans 1974
St. Etienne 1986
Lac de Vassiviere 1995
SlowRower

Final stage wins in the Tour of Anquetil, Merckx, Hinault and Mig?
gerry12ie

Correct - ask away...
SlowRower

Which cycling world champion was also a world champion in another sport and was the first person to win Winter and Summer Olympic medals in the same year?
billgull

Christa Luding-Rothenburger of East Germany won the Gold Medal
in the 1000mtr speed skating event at the 1988 Calgary Games and
won the Silver Medal in the cycling Match Sprint at the 1988 Seoul
Games. She was also World Champion in the Sprint Speed Skating
in 1985 and 1988 and was World Champion in the Cycling Match Sprint
in 1986.
SlowRower

Correct. It would probably have been Sheila Young, had track cycling for women been in the 1976 OGs as she won a gold at speed skating in the Innsbruck winter OGs and was world track sprint champ the same year.

On a related them, which cyclist is the only athlete to have won multiple medals at both the summer and winter OGs, though not in the same year?

Nothing to do with cycling, but a fine piece of trivia all the same, there is just one person to have won a gold medal in both the winter and summer OGs, though not in the same year. Any ideas?
Bartali

Eddie Eagan boxing and bob
gerry12ie

Is the multi medallist Clara Hughes?
Bartali

It's still Eddie Eagan ... box and bob!

Who are these fellas ....
SlowRower

4 man or 2 man, Bart? Smile
Bartali

4 man!

Mister Tom and Nino Defillipis 1961 Ronde???

edit....... if that's right where is this iconic tour finish??

Spot on!
gerry12ie

Puy de Dome - Clermont Ferrand

If that's right how about a cryptic one?

Tour De France - 1911

Giro d'Italia - ?

Vuelta a Espana - 2012

Give the year and why

OK, smarta*se! You doubtless already know that Eddie Eagan boxed at light heavyweight, but was he "regular" or "southpaw"? Smile

Now here's a real tester, though I must confess that I only found this out by accident whilst googling some other stuff...

One other person has won Olympic gold in both the summer and winter. Who is this person, when did it happen and what are the event(s) concerned?
gerry12ie

Well done SS - I was amazed that 1911 was the last TDF!
Slapshot 3

Facetious response Kathy, will need to think about it..;0)
Slapshot 3

4 wins

07 Contador
08 Sastre
11 Evans
12 Wiggings

next question....to follow
Slapshot 3

What connects the following -

Firenze – Modena st 11 1940
Les Sables d’olonne - La Rochelle st 7 1949
kathy

Well, Coppi won both stages, and went on to win the Giro in 1940 and the Tour in 1949, but I should think you're looking for more than that!
kathy

OK, complete stab in the dark - the first stages ever won by Coppi in the Giro and Tour respectively.
Slapshot 3

Correct, next question please
kathy

Oh dear, I was trying to get one right, because I had an odd question that came up in a quiz on Spanish TV the other day - the answer surprised me a great deal.  But I can't find any verification for it.

But while I'm looking for a proper question, I'll ask that one anyway, and see if any of you experts have heard of it.

What was Bernard Hinualt's nickmane in Spain?  Translating 'badger' does not give the right answer!

Have now found verification (!), so I'll let the question stand!

Not entirely sure but I recall a Spanish girl once asking me if I was wearing a Lacoste shirt because I supported Hinault, so my guess is Caiman - Crocodile.

Not sure if it's right but I have a tickler of a question that is very easy for anyone that listens to Velocast - who is the only rider to have won the Men's Road Race at the Worlds on his birthday?  

N.B. - It turned out there is a tenuous second rider so will accept both...
kathy

You are correct, Gerry!  That question came up on a Spanish quiz, El Milionario.  'Which cyclist was known as the 'Caimán'?'  Choice of 4 including Hinault, which the contestant guessed.  I scathingly said to myself that that couldn't be right cos Hinault was 'the Badger', but it turned out to be correct!
Fontfroide

Mark Scanlon won the Junior Championship on his 18th birthday, but I am sure that is not the answer you wanted.  If no one gets the senior one, I will invent a question.

In fact it is Johan Museeuw, so I have to ask a question.
gerry12ie

Correct on both counts FF!
Fontfroide

Which Tour winners died in World War I?
kathy

Have remembered

Lucien Petit-Breton.


Edit François Faber too

And Octave Lapize

Which year was the smallest winning margin in the Vuelta, and who was the winner that year?
Nolte

kathy wrote:

Lapize was the one that came directly to me at the question.
Fontfroide

I just looked it up, which should not really count, but I didn't realise that Froome was beaten by the third smallest margin last year.
kathy

I remembered reading about Petit-breton, then noticed FF had asked for winner(s) - so I looked the rest of them up, so perhaps it doesn't count - although it might be good information to remember when Barry's quiz starts again!

There have been several close Vueltas.  But the one I'm thinking of had an even tighter margin than Lemond's 8sec over Fignon Shocked
Slapshot 3

1984 6 seconds Eric Cariteux beat Alberto Fernandez


EDIT......Question:

Merckx won all three jerseys, GC, Points and Mountain in the Tour in 1969, It's happened on three other occasions in the Grand Tours, Who?? Which race and when??
Fontfroide

Merckx in 68 in the Giro.
Jalabert in the 95 Vuelta
Tony Rominger in the 93 Vuelta

Who has completed all three Grand Tours in one year, on four occasions?
Slapshot 3

Marino Lajaretta

Q to follow

Which section of cobbles in Paris Roubaix is reputed to have been in use the longest??
Fontfroide

When I looked this up, I was stunned to find that none of the cobbles had been used since 1940 or 1930 or even earlier.  Nothing before 1968, although Hem might have been used in the 50's, So that must be my answer.  I really was surprised to learn that not one stretch of pave was earlier than that.  I don't quite get it.

Who was the first Italian winner of the Tour and what was notable about his victory? (assuming I got the question right)

Goodnight all.
Slapshot 3

Hem is correct....reputedly...

First Italian winner was Ottavia Bottechia in 1924 (and in 1925) in 24 he wore yellow the whole way apart from one stage though he was still in the GC lead.

Question.....

Other than  Eddy Merckx only two others have one La Doyenne on three consecutive occasions, who are they and what years did they win??
kathy

The first ever winner, Houe (?) 1892 to 94

and Argentin, 1985 to 87, but he won again in 91.  My favourite classic!

I'll have to think of a question now .....

Whose palmares is this?

Ronde Van Vlaanderen (1913)
Bordeaux–Paris (1914)
Paris–Roubaix (1920)
Paris–Tours (1923)
Slapshot 3

Okay .... who is this fella?

Slapshot 3

Ottavio Bottechia???

Q to follow if I'm right
Slapshot 3




These two racer are significant in tour history, who are they and why??
Fontfroide

I think the first guy is Maurice Garin, the first winner of the tour in 1903 and also chucked out for taking the train the next year.

Don't recognise he second guy, although he is probably the first guy to win it twice or the first guy to climb the Tourmalet or something like that.
Slapshot 3

Wrong on the first but closer on the second mate..... Keep trying
kathy

Think the first one is Gustave Garrigou - and would the second be Françcois Faber?

Garrigou first guy to win the Tour twice, and Faber (Belgian?), first non-French winner??

Well the first fella is Petit Breton ....

... so the second fella must be Philippe Thys?  First two to double up on Tour wins?

Ok, sticking with the Giro.  Who was the first non-Italian rider to win the Giro more than once, and in what years?
Slapshot 3

Maitre Jacques 1960 and 1964

Okay, similarly, who was the first foreign rider to win the Vuelta twice??
kathy

Er, you're not correct, Slapshot.  Someone did it before then!
