RideSmart Trivia Contest - June 21, 2008 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)

Hi to all once again.

It is time for another trivia contest from us. This one will be centered around motorcycle riders' nick names. Few more questions but they should not be a problem.

Same rules. You sound off in the thread that you are participating. PM me your answers (be specific for each question). Include your name/email/tel#.

We will run this contest until Tuesday pm. Answers will be posted on Wednesday.
We will draw four names, and will contact them (pm/email). One prize per winner.

Now, you would like to know what is up for grabs, right?
Here is the list. 4 prizes:

1. Free track day with RideSmart
2. 50% off a RideSmart track day.
3. Free bike cam video at a RideSmart track day.
4. RideSmart T-shirt (free, of course).

So good luck to all of you. Keep the answers coming.
Now, on with the questions:


1. This rider uses number 46, and is probably one of the most famous riders ever. Italian born. What is his nick name?

2. Who is the two-time World Superbike champion that goes by the nickname of the "Texas Tornado"?

3. This three-time 500cc Grand Prix world champion from Modesto, California, is known as the "King". Who is he?

4. Known as "Steady Eddie" for his fast and consistent pace, he won all four of his 500cc Grand Prix championship titles in the 1980s. What is his last name?

5. Known for his hard-charging style, Japanese World Superbike rider Noriyuki Haga runs with the number 41. One of his nicknames is Samurai of slide, name the other.

6. "Flyin' Fred" won three AMA Superbike championship titles and two World Superbike championship titles. What's his last name?

7. One of Nicky Hayden's nick names is Kentucky Kid. What other nick name is he know by?

8. What is my nickname?


Good luck to all

...so who wants to know who the winners are?

Me too!

Gotta get all the names into the magic hat and do the magic spell to draw the names.
Actually we will see who answered the most questions right. In case of more than two correct ones, those will be drawn for first prize. We will keep going like that until all 4 names are drawn.
Give me a bit of time (I am at work and have to get some time freed asap to do this).

Talk to you all soon.
