De Wielrenners
Finish the evening with a unique theater experience with three great former cyclists! Joop Zoetemelk, Adrie van der Poel and Henk Lubberding tell stories about their careers. Major successes, funny anecdotes, doping affairs, and deep valleys are all discussed under the guidance of none other than Evert ten Napel, a cycling expert par excellence. They have won many awards together. They had a true sports mentality and did not want to give up. Joop Zoetemelk was the largest of the three. He was the winner of the Tour de France, the Vuelta a España, the Vuelta, the World Cup, and gold during the Olympic Games. The audience will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions after the break.
