Guy Smet; Big Scores in Belgium


The score may have been Dunfermline 1 Queen of the South 2 at East End Park, the other night, but in Flanders just now it’s Guy 24, Mario 22. That’s Guy Smet on 24 wins and recent VeloVeritas interviewee Mario Willems on 22.

Smet is big man, he wins on his own, making the splits ’til there’s no one left to get rid of – a few years ago we checked his cassette after a race; the film of chain lube was still pristine on all cogs from the 14 up.

Mario is smaller and chunkier; an aggressive rider too, but not frightened of a sprint.
