How about a quiz thread?

The rules are simple: (1) The question should be related to road bike racing, past and present. (2) The forum member who answers the question correctly gets to pose a new question. (3) He/she who posed the question is to be the juror as to which is the correct answer. (4) In case of doubt...

Here is the first question: Where was this picture taken?

Since jbhowat didn't give a full answer, I will.

Looks like the Muur van Geraardsbergen.

Correctamundo! 'Europe', of course, was nowhere close. The above picture was chosen also to reflect that we are all in eager anticipation of Sunday: Ronde van Vlaanderen

Laggard, You may now submit your puzzle.

During his epic climb and descent of the Gavia in the '88 Giro, what teams mechanic did Andy Hampsten nearly run into?

I have one more guess, but I'm going to give others a shot. It's just as well; my knowledge of cycling history is poo.

"Iron" Wim van Est was best known for his 70metre tumble while
descending the Aubisque.
What team did Wim van Est ride for?

Bruco, I expect you should know this!

The Dutch team? In 1951, the Tour was still contested by 'national', rather than 'commercial', teams.

yah but the team had a "name" not just the Dutch national team.

That "rope" they are using to pull Vim up with, its Tubulars
tied together. Amazing story.

I'm still thinking and browsing, but...

Meanwhile let me add two of the obvious Wim van Est points: (1) 'had never seen a mountain before'; (2) after his 'tubular rescue' said that his 'heart had stopped beating, but his Pontiac [watch] was still ticking'.

But the name...

Ok, I'll accept that (Garin Wolber)
although I thought it was Kees Pellenaars.
Hmmm wonder if there's a way to verify that.

Wim Van Est rode professionally from
1949 thru 1965. Lets see Lance do that!

From my searching, I think Kees Pellenaars was Dutch national champ in 1936 and (perhaps) was DS of the team. Perhaps?

Lotek, it's your question, hence your call.

(Kees Pellenaars was the name of the 'manager' of the Dutch team. And 'Garin Wolber' sounds like some French sponsor's name. gcasillo, dug it up, right?)
