Historic Overview Erik Pettersson
Erik Håkan Pettersson (born 4 April 1944) is a retired Swedish cyclist. He was part of the road racing team of four Pettersson brothers, known as Fåglum brothers, who won the world title in 1967–1969 and a silver medal at the 1968 Olympics; three of the brothers were also part of the bronze-winning road team at the 1964 Games. In 1967 they were awarded the Svenska Dagbladet Gold Medal.
Erik was the fastest sprinter among the Fåglum brothers; he was nicknamed Rödtoppen for his red hair. He turned professional after the 1969 World Championships, together with the other brothers, but had little success and retired in 1971.
