Veranda's Willems-Crelan rider Goolaerts was taken to hospital in Lille following a crash during the 257-kilometre race.
Goolaerts was hospitalised on Sunday after crashing out at the Paris-Roubaix one-day cycling race, his team announced, and died about 10:40 pm.
The Paris-Roubaix race has been nicknamed the "Hell of the North" due to the toughness of the race which features 29 sections of cobblestones. He was helicoptered to a Lille hospital, but "all medical assistance was to no avail".
Peter Sagan became the first world champion to win the Paris-Roubaix in 37 years, but the race was marred by Michael Goolaerts' suspected heart attack.

"I avoided crashes, and, actually, I feel less exhausted than the previous years", said Sagan, the first rider since Frenchman Bernard Hinault to win here as a world champion. "We share their huge sadness", he posted on Twitter.
Team Sky said in a statement: "Everyone at Team Sky is heartbroken by the loss of Michael Goolaerts".
