Johan Museeuw Palmares II
 

Here is a collection of all the main results Johan "The Lion of Flanders" Museeuw has amassed after 16 years in the business - his wins and top three finishes. It remains to be seen whether another Lion will roar as powerfully or for as long as he has. The list continues here for the years 1995 to 2004.
