EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print captured by Colorsport Images, we are transported back to the historic 1974 Tour de France. The image showcases the legendary Belgian cyclist Eddy Merckx during Stage 2 of the race, which took place on British soil for the very first time. Dressed in his iconic white combination jersey, Merckx can be seen cycling along the Plympton bypass with determination and grace. His focused expression reveals a fierce competitor ready to conquer any challenge that lies ahead. Little did spectators know at that moment that Merckx would go on to claim victory in the general classification. This particular stage holds immense significance as it was held in Plymouth to commemorate the United Kingdom's entry into the Common Market. The event not only marked a milestone for international relations but also brought together cycling enthusiasts from all over Britain who eagerly cheered on their favorite riders. The expertly captured photograph by Stewart Fraser allows us to relive this remarkable moment in sporting history. It serves as a testament to Merckx's exceptional skill and unwavering dedication, showcasing why he is considered one of cycling's greatest champions. As we gaze upon this timeless image, we are reminded of how sports have an incredible ability to transcend borders and unite people from diverse backgrounds under one common passion: celebrating human achievement through sport.
