Biography

Jos Hoevenaers (Antwerpen, 30 November 1932 - Wilrijk, 14 June 1995) was a Belgian cyclist, reputed for his attacking style.

In 1960 he wore the pink jersey of leadership for eight days in the Giro d'Italia, but Jacques Anquetil won instead. Bad luck, and inadequate time-trialling and sprinting stopped Hoevenaers' becoming the best Belgian Tour rider of his generation.
