Kwiatkowski Wins International Flandrien Award!
OPQS rider Michal Kwiatkowski was the recipient of the International Flandrien Award on Wednesday night. He received the award from cycling legend Eddy Merckx!
"It's an honor to get a prize like this one and from the hands of a cycling legend like Eddy Merckx," Kwiatkowski said. "I ride for a Belgian Team and I'm really connected to Belgium. I won the first race of my career at Driedaagse van West Vlaanderen two years ago, and I had good results in Liege-Bastogne-Liege and Flèche Wallone this year. I have a lot of friends here and I'm happy to have been selected as winner of the International Flandrien. It's a prize with a lot of history — before me a lot of great riders won this award. The trophy itself is really a piece of art and for sure I will find a good spot at my place for it."
