Le Tour de France 2014 – the quiz

For three weeks, we watched as some of the world’s best road cyclists traversed France and beyond through rain, rain, rain, and even a few slivers of sunlight. Was ours the easy job? Well, we didn’t have to battle the elements, ride on after horrendous crashes or climb mountains, but we did have to face something the pro peloton was shielded from: maintaining sanity in the face of hours of sometimes bizarre commentary.

Our efforts needn’t have been in vain, though. There’s always the chance to put this knowledge to use by attempting the LVDT quiz. There will be a prize for the winner! Entries close Monday at 8.30pm AEST. Email your responses by then and let’s see which fan reigns supreme!
