In amongst the discussion of yesterday’s post we had some readers lighten things up with some Giro quiz questions:

Sam: “who was the first Aussie to win a stage in both the Giro and the Vuelta?  Hint – he helped Richie Porte get a pro gig in Italy…”

Here’s a couple of ripper trivia questions about the great Neil Stevens – his prize for winning a Tour De France stage in 1997 included 30,000 Euros in cash plus what other bizarre prizes?  What was he reprimanded (but not expelled) from the 2002 Tour De France on the Mont ventouz stage for?

Sam, whoever you are, if you could please take on the responsibility of being the Quiz Master for the next 3 weeks I’d greatly appreciate it.  ;-)

Also over the course of the next 3 weeks we’ll be having some fun competitions with great give-aways.   Let the Giro begin!

Who’s your tip for this GC this year?

Bring it home Cadel!
