Pro cyclists can really suffer and are admired for it. This does not apply to Simon van Beneden. This once promising cyclist suffered more than most of his colleagues, but nobody knows his name. Still, this drama shows he has found his role within the sport. Not on the bicycle, but as a masseur, team leader, psychologist and nutritionist. Twenty years after the abrupt ending of his career, Van Beneden returns to the French Vosges as the 'master of providence'.
