Romain De Loof (born 6 March 1941) is a retired Belgian cyclist. After winning the UCI Motor-paced World Championships in 1962 and 1963 in the amateurs category, he turned professional and won another three medals in 1965–1967, including one gold.[1] He also competed at the 1960 Summer Olympics in the 4000m team pursuit but failed to reach the final.[2]

Between 1965 and 1970 he competed in 56 six-day track races, winning in Milan (1965; with Rik Van Steenbergen), Amsterdam and Rotterdam (both 1969; both with Peter Post). After a crash in the race of Gent-Wevelgem in 1970, he suffered a triple fracture of the pelvis and had to pause for a year.[3] He finally retired in 1975 and later acted as the manager of professional cycling teams Ebo-Cinzia en Marc-Zeepcentrale. In February 2010, he received a medal for services to the city of Eeklo.[4]
