I'm trying to get information on his old photo of Eddy Merckx
What year? Where? And what race? Any help appreciated!

Looks like a VW 412 behind him. Perhaps the Moltini Team,,,era??
It's not like he's dead, send them a message? They might get a real kick out of seeing that.

Yes...I have an inquiry into them and haven't heard back yet...just hoping someone might recall seeing this before. I'll post info if I hear back from him/them.
Thats definatly a Faema hat he is wearing, so it has to be 68-70.

Thanks for the input everyone...gave me the clues I needed.
This is a picture of the Eddy Merckx win at the 1969 Tour of Flanders.
Here is a link with more info on that particular race
