Van Petegem

Post by Admin on Sun Sep 15, 2013 6:17 am

2013 2013 2013 If you've ever wondered what the house of a Belgian champion looks like, now is your chance to find out. Peter Van Petergem and his wife Angelique Segaert have opened a bed and breakfast guesthouse near Sint Maria Horebeke, bang in the middle of the Brussels, Kortrijk and Gent triangle. <i>It's 10km from Geraardsbergen</i>.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.guesthouses.be/bbhotels/images/375_10094GCWEIlCHpCt.jpg" imageanchor="1"><img border="0" height="256" src="http://www.guesthouses.be/bbhotels/images/375_10094GCWEIlCHpCt.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><br />The venture is named Le Pavé, a nod to Van Petegem's 2003 Paris-Roubaix win. Offering a lot more comfort than the Roubaix showers, it's almost as exclusive with the price tag of up to €250 per night. It's hip-achingly modern, complete with a less-than-Flemish olive tree in the courtyard.<br /><br />As well as the name, there's a cycling touch as the hosts are delighted to welcome visiting cyclists and apparently "<i>superior Innergetic mattresses guarantee an excellent night's rest</i>", a phrase that sounds like it's been copied from the Quick Step press manual.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.letour.fr/stf/roubaix/2004/images/retro_peter_van_petegem.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://www.letour.fr/stf/roubaix/2004/images/retro_peter_van_petegem.jpg" /></a></div><br />Still, speaking to Belgian travel website <a href="http://grande.be/fr/2009/01/22/pave-horebeke/">Grand.be</a>, Madame Petegem says this is not meant to be a "<i>pilgrimage for old fans</i>", adding that she's had a diverse range of guests, with 70% coming from abroad. It's very much Angelique Segaert's project, with Peter Van Petegem mostly occupied selling insurance these days but if you ask, he's often around for a chat. He might be less likely to appear if he takes up the offer to join Garmin-Cervélo's management team.<br /><br />More at <a href="http://www.lepave.be/">http://www.lepave.be/ </a><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br>If you've ever wondered what the house of a Belgian champion looks like, now is your chance to find out.
