March 2009 Dave Campbell's Trivia


Q1. On February 28, Thor Hushovd (Cervelo Test Team) became the first Norwegian to win this coveted Belgian Semi-Classic. He is only the NINTH Non-Belgian winner in the race’s 64 year history. Which “other nation” has been most successful in the 200 km cobbled “hard man’s” race?

Q2: What is the best result ever in this race by an ENGLISH Speaking rider?

Q3. Hushovd is also a past winner of the Belgian spring classic Ghent-Wevelgem. With the cobbles, the climate, the climbs, and the country (Belgium) Het Nieuwsblad (or Het Volk or Ghent-Ghent) would likely see MANY riders win both. And yet, it has been awhile! Who was the last rider who triumphed at Het Volk also had a Ghent-Wevelgem in his palmares?
