In 2020 we honour
the true heroes of Flanders

The Tour of Flanders. A monument in cycling but like so many other events,
the high mass of one-day cycling races didn’t go through as planned this year.
On Sunday April 5th, the legendary Koppenberg remained quiet.

It was an opportunity for Het Nieuwsblad to honour a different kind of hero:
our healthcare workers. As a tribute, the names of aid workers with the same
last name as well-known cycling heroes were painted along the length of
the infamous slope. No Wout but Monique Van Aert, no Tiesj but Dirk Benoot.
