September 03, 1990

Belgian cyclist Rudy Dhaenens, who finished only 42nd in this year's Tour de France, beat some of the best riders in the world--including Tour de France winner Greg LeMond--and became the 1990 world champion at Utsunomiya, Japan.

After a race decided in the final lap of the nine-mile course, Dhaenens finished only a shoulder ahead of compatriot Dirk De Wolf. Both completed the 18-lap, 161-mile race in six hours 51 minutes 59 seconds, an average speed of 23.8 m.p.h.
