A couple of weeks ago the Wikipedia article on Merckx said he did not finish the 1977 TDF. That wsa wrong. It has been corrected. Now the article includes
[quote]Tour de France debut in 1969, Merckx immediately won the yellow jersey (overall leader), the green jersey (best sprinter) and the red polka-dotted jersey ("King of the Mountains" - best climber in the mountain stages). No other cyclist has achieved this trifecta in the Tour de France, and only Laurent Jalabert has been able to match this feat at the Grand Tour level, in the 1995 Vuelta.[quote]
I guess technically one could say Eddy matched it in the Giro, but one other rider also walk away from one of the Grand torus with all three jerseys BEFORE Jalabert.
Two questions. Who and how could someone know about Jalabert and not the other rider.
But what I'm really wondering about is what they will get wrong next? And will it match the faix paix on Vrs. where they said Eddy won the 1969 Giro?
