It would be nice to continue this thread or start a new thread as a tribute to Gerrie Knetemann. How about we all post interesting facts and quotes about Gerrie and also some interesting photos. I have a couple of cycling books which have great photographs and I will take a look this weekend to see what I can find. Anybody else have other memorabilia of "Kneet" that many of us may not have ever seen? For some reason I think those Dutch guys were hard as nails (probably because they and most bicycle racers are) . Wasn't he also one of the few Olympic champions that won a medal as an amateur and then went on to have a successful pro career? I am a sucker for cycling history and that black and white photo in the first post is fantastic!
