Alright. This isn’t getting easy any time soon. Sorry. We try, but one idea leads to another and before we know it we’re asking questions about magazine-sponsored riders from the nineties.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this week’s quiz. We might do a super-easy one soon with some prizes. Stay tuned.
If you are proud or ashamed of your MTB knowledge, share the quiz with your friends (see foot of page for Facebook sharing) and see how they get on.

Klein's Mantra was a whacky shape and reportedly didn't work too well... but it looked cool, right?
Here's Stevie Smith riding a Cove in his timeless 'Seasons' film section:
Henderson still shreds on a bike and clearly loves MTB and BMX.
The Carpenter family was instrumental in taking British downhill to heady new heights — the Dragon series was undeniably the beginnings of 'real' downhill on Brit soil. Here's what BikePark Wales looked like before it was BikePark Wales:
