“Ik was op het land kunstmest aan het strooien, toen de postbode kwam”, vertelde hij daar later over. “Ik heb alles laten staan en ben naar binnen gerend. Maar ik was natuurlijk liever als eerste over de streep gekomen. Op deze manier winnen is nooit leuk. Ik heb nooit op het erepodium gestaan. Het was veel mooier geweest als ik ’s middags over de finish was gekomen en daarna de krans om had gekregen.”

Late huldiging

Pas in 1998, 51 jaar na zijn zege, werd Van der Hoorn gehuldigd. Hij kreeg van de wethouder van Capelle aan den IJssel een paar schaatsen cadeau.

Na zijn zege in de Tocht van 1947 reed Van der Hoorn nog veel wedstrijden. In de Elfstedentocht van 1954 kwam hij, op kromme schaatsen, hand in hand met Jaap Wijnia en Henk Lamberts als zevende, achtste en negende over de finish.

In de barre Elfstedentocht van 1963 gaf Van der Hoorn, net als velen, na enkele valpartijen in Sneek op. De Tochten van 1985, 1986 en 1997 reed hij als toerrijder. Tijdens die laatste tocht was hij 73 jaar en kwam hij binnen 11 uur over de finish. Dat was bijna dezelfde tijd (10 uur en 52 minuten) als tijdens zijn zege in 1947.
