Dwars door Vlaanderen records
Belgium is the most successful country, which does not come as a big surprise as the race is on Belgian soil. 55 editions were won by a home rider.
Thirteen riders did win Dwars door Vlaanderen twice. Nine of them were Belgian: André Rosseel (1948, 1950), Raymond Impanis (1949, 1951), Briek Schotte (1953, 1955), Walter Godefroot (1966, 1968), Daniel Van Ryckeghem (1967, 1970), Walter Planckaert (1977, 1984), Eric Vanderaerden (1986, 1991), Johan Museeuw (1993, 1999) and Niko Eeckhout (2001, 2005). On three occasions it was a Dutchman who brought home the bacon: Jelle Nijdam (1987, 1995), Tristan Hoffman (1996, 2000), Niki Terpstra (2012, 2014) and Yves Lampaert (2017, 2018).
Terpstra is the only two times-winner who is still in the peloton.
