Van Petegem and Baguet set for Derny Festival farewell

Peter van Petegem and his best friend Serge Baguet have accepted an invitation to race the Derny Festival in Wetteren, which will mark the final race for the pair in their home Provence of east Flanders. The duo recently announced that they would be retiring from the professional peloton on the September 11, and will contest the Derny Festival as apart of their goodbye to professional racing.

Joining the two retiring riders will be Wouter Weylandts and Nick Nuyens. Organisers are hoping that the dernies will be quick enough for the riders.
