Marcel Kint

Happy birthday to Marcel Kint, who was born on this day in 1914, and died on March 23, 2002.

The Belgian rider is best remembered as a one-day "classics" specialist, who won the 1938 World Championship Road Race in front of Swiss riders Paul Egli and Leo Amberg.

In addition, Kint won the 1943 Paris-Roubaix Classic in front of Jules Lowie of Belgium and Louis Thietard of France, the Ghent-Wevelgem Classic in 1949 and the Fleche Wallonne Classic in 1943, 1944, and 1945.

Kint shares the record of victories in the Fleche Wallonne Classic with Eddy Merckx of Belgium and Moreno Argentin of Italy.
