Happy 64th Birthday Joop Zoetemelk

A Dutch cyclist (living in France) who rode and finished the Tour de France an amazing 16 times (still a record). He won the General Classification once (in 1980) and came in second five times. He also won the Vuelta a Espana in 1979, either years after winning the King of the Mountains title in the same event. Zoetemelk won Paris-Nice three times, Paris-Tours twice, and the Dutch National Road Race Championship (in 1973), and the World Championship (1985).
