From cyclingnews.com: For his part, Merckx complained bitterly after Stage 10 that Virenque had not abided by the agreement they had made once the lead duo realized that they could likely get to Saint-Flour ahead of the rest of the Tour peloton. "There wasn't a whole lot I could do, (once Virenque attacked)," said Merckx. "On the first category climb, Richard went stronger. We had agreed that he was going to take all the points for the mountains jersey then afterwards we would fight for the finish here and not before. But I guess he has a hard time keeping his word."
If you can't ride like your old man, don't whine about it. Put or shut up.
