Merckx à Montréal!

I like the dune buggy turn into camera vehicle!


Eddy Merckx never won a single Classic race in 1974. But, he did win the world championship in Montréal. It was his third rainbow jersey. Having won the Giro & Tour de France, the Cannibal was the first rider to take the Triple Crown of Cycling. Stephen Roche did the same in 1987.

Here's rare footage of Merckx and Poulidor as the only two left for the lead up to the final sprint. Unfortunate for Pou Pou... pure class for the Cannibal!
