As Johan Museeuw sat on the threshold of a possible fourth win in Paris-Roubaix, de Vlaeminck was asked how he felt regarding Museeuw equaling his record.
de Vlaeminck responded, I have won the Milan-San Remo thee times, Tirreno–Adriatico six time, twenty two stages in the Giro d’Italia as well as the points classification three times. If Museeew wins in Roubaix next week, he will not have equaled my palmarès.
Roger de Vlaeminck was a baller.
