Quiz: Can you Guess the Riders in these Pixelated Images

Apr 6, 2020
by Ed Spratt  
With racing suspended and many of us on lockdown, there's nothing better than a quiz to starve the boredom away. Don't worry your internet hasn't broken we have purposely scrambled these images of some of the top downhill riders, can you name all of them?



































































































































































All credit for the original images goes to Dave Trumpore, Nathan Hughes, Ross Bell and Andy Vathis



How many did you get right?

 So we can just assume that PB doesn't want to admit the Grim Donut was a complete waste of money, is unrideable and isn't even worth a second video... Cause even a half assed edited grim donut video would make for better content than this Japanese porn guess the rider post.

 it is kinda weird... we know they had SOME footage 3 months ago, and we know they're not going to get more any time soon.

 I wouldn’t expect the grim doughnut is the safest of bikes to ride and testing means pushing it to its limits. Not the best of ideas in the current situation. Need to keep hospital workloads as low as possible right now.

 We will probably have to wait almost a full year for the next Grim Donut video.

 This would be a lot better if you clicked on the word "Answer" and the word turned into the answer... Instead of redirecting you to another page and then having to come back every time.

 Pic #4 is clearly Bill Lambeer on a bike

Pic #7 might be Maria Sharapova or it could be Ron Hextall...tough to say, one or the other

Pic # 10 is either Grant Fuhr on a bike or Usaine Bolt running down a mountain like Wile E Coyote

 Got a crazy good amount right, but I whiffed on a couple of the ladies. Cabirou was hard, Pompon was impossible b/c she was hardly visible this year, Maes threw me b/c of his ruby red frame Didn't even click some that were super obvious like Rachy, Gwin, Hart, Pierron, Brendog, Vergier, Bruni, Tahnee, Blenki, Moir, Harrison, Wyn, Bulldog, Thieron, Mik, Tracy. Williamson was impossible though.

 Pompon was actually pretty easy with the french national champ jersey and the red bull helmet

 @marge88: Same, Hannah, Pompom and Seagrave was super easy, now getting the men right was not so easy :/...
