    I think I went for Gimondi, Walkowiak, and probably Van Impe. A good spread, and I'd've been fine. You could've won with Stephen Roche, so I think anyone knowing the subject would've very unlucky not to.

    Colombia is close to becoming the 14th nation to win the Tour de France, and also the ninth to produce a winner of all three grand tours. There's an unexpectedly long time to wait for tomorrow's action, so while we wait:

    Which are the other eight, and which was the last nation to add itself to the list?

    As that one fell like a lead balloon, I'll try another. Watching today reminded me of something. In which year was the Paris circuit raced in the opposite direction?

    Possibly because Colombia are the 10th, not the 9th (at least until Horner retrospectively has his Vuelta taken off him). ;)

    I think my brain's developed a filter which protects me from seeing that one.

    The Col de l'Iseran (2770 m) was the highest KOM on this year's Tour, but what's been the lowest KOM for a major race? (UCI x.1 or better.)

    Box Hill is about 180 m, and Newlands Corner is about 170 m.
    You can go quite a bit lower than that.

    My guess would be the Tour of Denmark.
