EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the legendary Belgian cyclist, Eddy Merckx, during the 1974 Tour de France. In this particular stage, which took place in Plymouth, England, Merckx can be seen donning his white combination jersey underneath his Molteni team top as he speeds along the Plympton bypass. Little did anyone know at that moment that Merckx was on his way to securing not only the overall general classification but also the combination classification. This victory marked a significant milestone for Merckx as it became his fifth and final triumph in the prestigious race, equaling Jacques Anquetil's record. The intensity and determination etched on Merckx's face perfectly encapsulate his unrivaled talent and unwavering spirit. What makes this image even more special is its historical context. This edition of the Tour de France was particularly unique as it marked the first time ever that Britain hosted a stage of this iconic race. The event served as a celebration of UK's entry into the Common Market. Preserved by Colorsport Images and captured by photographer Stewart Fraser on June 29th, 1974, this print serves as an everlasting testament to Eddy Merckx's greatness and immortalizes an unforgettable moment in cycling history.
