Additional details:
The Dutch rider was regarded as one of the most dominant forces in both Grand Tour events and One-Day races throughout the 1970’s.

Some of Kuiper’s most notable achievements in One-Day races included winning the 1975 World Championship Road Race in front of Roger De Vlaeminck of Belgium and Jean-Pierre Danguillaume of France, along with the 1981 Tour of Flanders Classic, the Tour of Lombardy Classic (same year), the 1985 Milan-San Remo Classic and the 1972 Olympic Road Race.

In Grand Tour events, Kuiper stood on the podium of the Tour de France twice, after finishing 2nd in the 1977 race behind Bernard Thévenet of France and 2nd again in 1980 behind fellow-Dutchman Joop Zoetemelk.
