Biography

Rudy Pévenage (Moerbeke, 15 June 1954) is a former Belgian cyclist, and later in his career team coach of cycling teams such as Histor, La William, Team Bianchi and T-Mobile Team.

Pévenage was a professional cyclist from 1976 until 1988. His largest success was in the Tour de France: he won one stage and won the points classification. In 1979 he reached second place in the Tour de Suisse. He also spent nine days in the yellow jersey, leading the general classification in the Tour de France. His nickname was de rosse van Moerbeke.

After his cycling career, Pévenage became a team manager. Pévenage was team manager of Deutsche Telekom when Jan Ullrich started his career. In 2002, when Ullrich was forced to leave the team, Pévenage followed Ullrich to his new team Bianchi. After a good 2003 Tour de France, Ullrich returned to Telekom, without Pévenage. In 2006, Pévenage returned to Telekom (then renamed T-Mobile). When Ullrich was suspected of using illegal doping in Operación Puerto and was fired by T-Mobile Team, Pévenage also had to leave. He was rumoured to have worked as a connection between Ullrich and the Spanish Eufemiano Fuentes.
