Belgian Cycling legend starts at Eroica Limburg

June 5, 2018

Living cycling legend Roger de Vlaeminck is the next big name that rides Eroica Limburg on Saturday June 30. Normally De Vlaeminck doesnt need an introduction. For our foreign guests and younger Eroica fans we will give a short resume of his great career. De Vlaeminck was one of the best classics riders in the seventies. But was also succesfull in cyclocross. In this last discipline he won two worldtitels In total he won 177 races on the road and 74 cyclocross races. One of his nicknames was Monsieur Paris-Roubaix. He rode this race 14 times and had only to give up in 1980. He won Paris-Roubaix 4 times. Also worth mentioning is his 6 times in a row win of Tirreno-Adriatico. A record that still stands today.

Besides Roger de Vlaeminck, other former pro riders will ride Eroica Limburg such as: Joop Zoetemelk, Leo van Vliet, Johan Museeuw and many more. Come and see them start (9.00h – near Cup&Vino in Vakenburg) and or finish around 1300h (Dersaborgpark – Valkenburg).
