Trick Jersey Questions

Remember I warned you.

1) Which riders have won the Green Jersey in both the TDF and Giro.

2) Which rider has won the most White Jerseys in the TDF.

Hints: The trick is not talking about 'winning' as in wearing, winning means winning at the end. The questions shoulld be answered exactly as asked.

1 out of 2. You got that I said Green Jersey, not Sprinters. From there it is just legwork and either you did it or you knew. (If the later I'm impressed).

Now go back and try the other one. It is both tougher and easier. The 'trick' part is harder and over 90% of all refrences will have the wrong answer to the question as asked. Once the trick part is known the legwork is easier and it is easier to remember once you know the answer.

the "trick" referred to is that the green jersey at the Tour and Giro are for different classifications.

Sprinter/KOM

I'll leave it up to someone else to find the answer.
