Christmas Quiz 2016

 

The winner takes it all, right? Well, in cycling that often isn’t the case. Some of the most iconic moments in the history of the sport have involved riders who did not win. The identity of the actual winners often gets forgotten with the passing of time.

So the question for each of the following 20 photos is simple: on the day that the famous incident occurred, who won?

For stage races, I’m looking for the winner of the stage that day, not the winner of the overall race.

Send me your answers via email only please to mail@irishpeloton.com. Let’s not flood the comments below by giving away answers to potential rivals.

The person with the most right answers will win a copy of the latest Soigneur magazine – a beautiful cycling publication which was originally written in Dutch only but is now being produced in English.

The deadline is midnight on New Year’s Eve.

Good luck!
