Former ex-professional Peter Winnen will have two events named after him this year. The first one is on August 16, starting in his birthplace Ysselsteyn, Netherlands. The second one will be held in September in Ethiopia.
The money raised in the August event is for a good cause. It will go towards the Ethiopia project of the Bike4All Foundation. The foundation supports cycling in poor countries. Winnen is a board member of Bike4All.
In his career Peter Winnen won the famed Alpe d'Huez Tour stage twice. He finished third in the overall of the 1983 Tour and also won the young rider classification in 1981. In 1990 he became the Dutch National champion.
