Jean Aerts (1907-1992) born in Laken near Brussels, Belgian, was a professional road racing cyclist. Aerts won the 1927 Amateur Road Race Championship and the 1935 Professional Road Race Championship. His greatest ability was that of sprinting. His climbing ability wasn't strong enough to make him a contender in the great tours. Jean Aerts won 11 stages in the Tour de France, 6 of those victories were during the 1933 race. He also finished 9th over all in the 1933 Tour.
