Faemino Eddy Merckx 1970

Belgian National Champion Eddy Merckx in 1970. While wearing this jersey the Cannibal went on to win eight stages of the Tour de France. In today's standards we're bowled over when some one like Cavendish comes along and wins six and those are sprint stages. This is why it will be a long time till we get a champion like this again. He truely dominated the races he competed in leading from the front. He ended up winning the Tour by almost 13 minutes and won all but the Maillot Vert.
