1990 Worlds RR was a strange race indeed... reports in Flanders newsapapers at the time were of Dhaenens 'waking at three am' to go training as to adjust his body clock for Japanese time! (Don't forget Rudy was riding for PDM at the time...) Both he and De Wolf were so dominant in the race it was a joke.

Cornelesse also rode on Panasonic, and a small Belgian Kermesse team called 'La William'... how he ever won Tour of Luxemburg being primarily a rider for the flat one-days opened a few eyes at the time too! (Nice guy though...)

Dirk was a solid pro, considered not to be a thinker... good strong domestique. Goes to show what a good soigneur will do...  ;)

Interesting stuff!  8) I reckon Rudy would probably still be working in cycling if he were alive today.

That 3am stuff sounds like the classic nightly exercises to prevent blood clotting, doesn't it?
