Johan Museeuw's custom painted S-Works Tarmac Disc - Gallery

It has been 15 years since Johan Museeuw – The Lion of Flanders – retired from the sport, but the Belgian still regularly rides his bike, leading tourist rides or simply joining current professionals for training.

Museeuw won three Tours of Flanders, three Paris-Roubaix titles and a world championships road race during his career, and has a reputation as one of the all-time greats of the cobbled Classics.

Several of Museeuw's victories were in the famous Mapei colours and racing on Colnago framesets. Museeuw is now loosely affiliated with Specialized through his bike touring company and his continued his association with the Deceuninck-QuickStep set-up.

In the lead-up to the 2019 Paris-Roubaix, Museeuw rode to the velodrome aboard a custom-painted S-Works Tarmac Disc, paying homage to his biggest victories and his iconic nickname.
