Museeuw puts something back

It is a well worn cliche that retired sportsmen want to give something back to the sport that made them rich and in Johan’s case it may well be true. He has been to Mongolia and has chosen four cyclists to come to Belgium to try their hand at cyclo-cross.

Museeuw bikes are now sold in twelve countries but it is unlikely that there will ever be a market on the steppes of Mongolia for £3000 flax bike frames so we must take the Lion of Flanders at his word when he says that he is involved purely for the good of the sport.

The successors of Ghengis Khan are staying for three months in the town of Kobbegem north west of Brussels. “No vodka, cola and just healthy eating. And certainly not escapades with women” are the rules that have been laid down. Let’s hope they enjoy their stay.
