That year, the Belgian Gustaaf DeLoor brought home the title and in 1936 Gustaaf also finished first.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SHOP "RETRO WIELERKLEDING"

By Wijtze De Groot General
We get several questions about the website Retro-Wielerkleding.nl. Until recently this was another website which was not managed by our team. Meanwhile this shop ceased to exist. Unfortunately we cannot answer questions about this shop, (current) orders and such. Also, if you want to return a shipment that you have placed through this site, it is not possible for us to handle this. If you have a question about a jersey that you ordered through this site - regarding a different size/version - we can of course check if we ourselves have it in stock.
