Flandrien Inspired & Proud

Belgian Champion and Flandrien, Roger De Vlaeminck- 
1970 Liege-Bastogne-Liege
via Castelli Cycling

The great Roger De Vlaeminck won an astounding 257 victories during his career that spanned 15 years (1969-1984). A majority of his victories were one-day races or Classics. Uncannily comfortable on the treacherous cobbles of Paris-Roubaix (four time winner) he excelled in the Monuments of Cycling becoming one of three to win all five masterpieces of cycling's toughest classics; Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Liege-Bastogne-Liege and Giro di Lombardia. It's not a surprise he shares this special Monument podium with his two fellow Belgians Rik Van Looy and Eddy Merckx. Thus our Flandrien cycling cap is created as a symbol to that fighting spirit of those Flandriens - past, present and future.
