12 pictures of 12 Spring Classics from down the many can you identify?

The Spring Classics are one of the most exciting periods of the pro cycling calendar, with every edition of every one of the races providing full throttle racing and usually some added drama - for better or worse.

As such, the races are easily remembered and distinguishable from year to year, with different sets of protagonists writing their names into the history books by nature of the efforts they leave on the road.

From the weather bashed early semi-Classics to the Monuments in the shape of Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders, these one day races can define careers.

As the 2016 Paris-Roubaix showed, too, they can also be exciting from start to finish and lead to the most unlikely of winners.

To celebrate everything that's great about the Spring Classics we've put a gallery quiz together, with 12 races from down the years needing to be matched up.

How many can you identify?
