W.S.C. Torhout - Flandria - Romy Pils


Flandria - Romy Pils is a team, from what I can tell, that was only around from 1976-78 under the Romy Pils name (a beer still being produced in Oudenaarde, Belgium). Romy Pils sponsored a number of cycling teams through the 60's and 70's into the 80's, and they still may have some under their name today. I do know of the Novy - Romy Pils - Dubble Bubble team from 1973 which had some great Belgian riders like Dirk Baert who has a trail of victories including a World Championship on the track. I love the jersey design they had, simple and elegant like many from that era. If anyone knows any more about this team send the info my way, I would love to discover more.
