In 1923 he was the first driver to achieve the “double” Paris – Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders within a year , a success that was only achieved in 2010 by another Swiss driver, Fabian Cancellara .
Suter was the youngest of six brothers ( Franz , Paul , Fritz, Max and Gottfried) who were all racing drivers. The most successful next Heiri was Paul, the 1923 stayer - World Champion was. Suter later turned to the standing race and was led to two championship titles by his brother Paul.
