It’s not enough to win. Winning can be boring, routine. But to win with style, with daring, with panache - that is what elevates a rider to the greats.
Three of the greatest rides of all time, where riders took the peloton, the race, the elements and the landscape itself and bent it to their will.
On the 15th July, 1969, Eddy Merckx scored perhaps his greatest triumph. Riding in his debut Tour de France, Merckx - already in yellow - attacked early.
He rode for 140km alone through the Pyrenées’ feared ‘Circle of Death’, across the Col de Peyresourde, Col d'Aspin, Col du Tourmalet and the Col d’Aubisque.
He won the stage by an incredible eight minutes, and the era of Merckxissimo was born.
