It’s time for the fifth annual Just Pro Cycling Pub Quiz, which I do purely for the love of pro cycling and not at all for the wonderful spike in website views. How well do you know the 2019 season? It’s tough this year…
There aren’t enough pro cycling quizzes, trivia and games on the internet and I aim to change that. Answers will be posted at the bottom of this page on Monday 21st October. No cheating! Bonus points to anybody who actually prints it off and uses it at their club ride Christmas party.
