Belgian Lomme Driessens has died in Vilvoorde on Thursday, aged 94. Driessens was a cyclist in his time, but he was best known as a team manager, working with riders such as Eddy Merckx and Freddy Maertens, as well as a soigneur for Fausto Coppi, Charly Gaul and Rik Van Looy. Seven of his riders became world champions, although he was also known as a manager who got the most out of lesser riders.
