Find the pro cycling team

Contest: Can you find the professional cyclists in the photo montage?

Bonus points for identifying the 80s New Wave bands here. In fact, I’ll ship a free Clean Bottle to the first person who can correctly identify all 16 groups in the below montage. Each image has a number on it, so use that to identify what you’re talking about. USA only for the prize, and I have to be able to contact you so leave a valid email address in the Disqus comment form. I’m the final judge of what’s correct and who’s first. If there’s no winner by the weekend, the contest closes.

    Well done. I’ve never seen that picture of REM. Didn’t even recognize them.

    Nice with the newish pic of Ah ha, thought for a second it was Big Country but remembered Ah ha was a trio. Outfield would have been a good one too.

    Number 8 is Frank… not Andy. Andy: http://tinyurl.com/267hblv (at same conference) and Frank: http://tinyurl.com/24bptj5 (via http://www.cyclingnews.com/ )

    So, do you think that Cycling Weekly labeled their photo incorrectly? http://tinyurl.com/ltrek
