The Spring Classics Quizzer 's

19 April 2022

Springclassics are over and the winners are known! But who will win our spring quiz after 12 exciting rounds? Wondering if you know more than Lotte Kopecky and Kasper Asgreen? Read on and find out how you and the pros perform.  

Do you know for whom the Omloop was the first victory in his professional career? We also asked Jasper Stuyven and Lotte Kopecky these and other Omloop Het Nieuwsblad-questions. Find out how they did it right here. 

Lotte Kopecky 

Jasper Stuyven

After our spring kicked off with Kopecky and Stuyven, who both scored 5 points, we continued with Gent-Wevelgem.   

Did Greg Van Avermaet and Marta Bastianelli do better with their knowledge about Gent-Wevelgem? In the run-up to that second classic, we also put them to the test. Whether Greg Van Avermaet knew who the record holder was among the women and Marta Bastianelli could answer the question which world war we commemorate during Gent-Wevelgem, you can see below.

Marta Bastianelli 

After the second round of our spring quiz, the duo of the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad were still on top of our standings. Greg Van Avermaet and Marta Bastianelli shared second place in the standings after the quiz.  

Wondering if fellow record holders of Dwars door Vlaanderen, Ellen Van Dijk and Yves Lampaert could mix up the classification? Do you know what the last cobblestone section of the race is? And when did the first edition for Elite Women take place? Yves and Ellen both knew the answer to that. They jumped straight over Gent-Wevelgem duo Bastianelli and Van Avermaet to the first place, the leading position they could share with Kopecky and Stuyven. Do you do better than 5 correct answers?  

Yves Lampaert

Ellen Van Dijk

With the Dwars door Vlaanderen race, we were already halfway through our spring and in the middle of the holy week of cycling. Former Tour of Flanders winners Kasper Asgreen and Annemiek van Vleuten took their chance in a quiz about the Tour of Flanders. Curious how they did it?  

Annemiek Van Vleuten 

Kasper Asgreen

With a weak score of 2 points, Van Vleuten and Asgreen were already no longer in contention for the overall victory in the Flanders Classics quiz classification. Do sprinters Lorena Wiebes and Fabio Jakobsen do better at the Scheldeprijs Quiz?  

Fabio Jakobsen

Lorena Wiebes

Fabio Jakobsen proved that his classic knowledge was better than that of teammate Kasper Asgreen. With 3 points he placed himself on a provisional third place.  Lorena Wiebes joined the 2021Tour of Flanders winners in last place with 2 points.  

Will Elisa Balsamo and Philippe Gilbert shake the tree one last time in the classification of our quiz? We also put them to the test ahead of the Brabantse Pijl.  

Elisa Balsamo

Philippe Gilbert

That Edwig van Hooydonck is the record holder in the Brabantse Pijl was not known by world champion Elisa Balsamo. But that didn't stop her from setting a top score. In the final round of our spring quiz, she managed to leapfrog Wiebes, Asgreen and Van Vleuten into third place, which she shares with Jakobsen. Gilbert placed a solitary second just behind this season's winners Kopecky, Stuyven, Van Dijk and Lampaert.  

After a wonderful spring with great winners, we can also look back with satisfaction at the spring quiz where the final ranking is full of real Flandriens and Flandriennes!
