Well done FF.
I just have to boast that I got 15 for this weeks quiz - it may be the one and only time I get 15. Well pleased! Very Happy

Boasting is good among friends.  For most of us normal people getting a fifteen gives a lift to life.  Not massive, but nevertheless ….

Certainly does give a lift at the start of the week, but back down to my usual low standard of 6 this week!!!!  Crying or Very sad

I will definitely check out the answers this time round in an effort to improve my cycling history knowledge.

I tried this year to study the relevant Wikipedia entries, and to review last year's answers, as well as the warm up trivia quiz.  It was cool, and paid off immediately with the names of the three guys who had won …. (you know the one I mean).  I even know an answer to a question about the next rung of Monument Guys which has got to be asked sooner or later.  I figure if I study hard (the data pile is next to the toilet, where I sit a lot), I am going to gain ten points over the year.  And as we know it can come down to a few points, and even the last quiz.  So I am currently studying obscure winners of classics, mostly Belgians I have never even heard of, hoping the answers will pop into my mind.  Too much information.  Too many Belgians.

Wow, that was a toughie this week! Managed to get 8, most of which were just guesses. I recognised some of the descriptions but putting a year to them wasn't easy.

I scored 5, 4 of which I definitely knew.
So only 1 of my guesses was correct Sad
I only got to question 10 mind you.

Have to be careful not to give anything away until after the period ends.

I got 8
that was interesting one, I started to celebrate after , like the rider who crossing the line first question 5 and then I saw more and thought crap, like the rider crossing the line first, raising their hands in victory then finds out there are 10 more laps to go

Yep, I am.  Keep forgetting about it.  And then something comes up.  Then I am too tired.  Then ….

I will catch up today, or tomorrow for sure.

Just caught up.

Did not too badly on the last two weeks, missed one question.  Single digits the first two weeks.  I fear I am out of the running for second, but you never know.  I shall click hard until the last question.

I can only assume that Slapshot is the person setting the questions.

It IS totally awesome.  Whatever other qualities, bike choices, personality defects, foolish historical choices, career prospects, etc Slapshot might have, it does seem like he knows a helluva lot of cycling trivia.  Not that bad on picking winners either.  In our small world, someone to admire and respect.  I do anyway.

Awww....sweet!

It's called being very very sad. When I get something I want to achieve I try to do it and winning the winter quiz at some point was important to me personally and to see JC on top.

All being well, I will stop at the end of this year and Barry has already asked if I'll join the "other" side, I'll be proud to do so.
