Jan Raas

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

The most accomplished Dutch rider in terms of Cobbled results, with two Flanders wins, one Paris-Roubaix, three E3 victories, two K-B-Ks, one Paris-Brussels and a Het Volk. He was on the Flanders and Roubaix podiums a combined six times in his six best years.

Tournament Mojo

Stared death in the face (literally) in a decisive win over Maurice Garin. Took out Louison Bobet in round 1.

Octave Lapize

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

Won three consecutive editions of Paris-Roubaix (1909-1911) at a time when the Tour of Flanders didn't yet exist. Also took three editions of Paris-Brussels in that time frame.

Tournament Mojo

Doubled up Heiri Suter after kicking Hennie Kuiper to the curb in Rd 1.
