Although born in The Netherlands, Patrick is an Aussie. He often raced with a Dutch licence during his career and has won 12 major European races in his career.

His best finish at Tour de France was 12th overall. The same year Bjarne Riis toppled Big Mig and a young up and coming Ullrich was second.

Many will know of Patrick’s great win in his final race as a professional, the Tour Down Under. It was a fairytale win for him in front of his home town crowd and one that we will remember for years to come.
