Cyclist Magazine Podcast Episode 28 – Johan Museeuw, the Lion of Flanders

15 Apr 2021

Johan Museeuw – the Lion of Flanders, one of the greatest Cobbled Classics riders of all-time and one of cycling's true hardmen.

Now 55 years old, Museeuw chats to James and Joe on the latest Cyclist Magazine Podcast about how he is still stronger than some pros on the bike, how Remco Evenepoel and Wout van Aert need to deal with the pressures of being the 'next Eddy Merckx' and his special bond with former team manager Patrick Lefevere.

Johan also settles some debates including Paris-Roubaix or Tour of Flanders, Belgian beer or Italian wine and also declares the ultimate Flandrien.
