Hi Brian, This is taken from your letter to CyclingNews:
"First, Maertens did not bring Gimondi and Ocana across, Maertens bridged across on his own and offered to work with Merckx and let him take the win, Eddy refused and immediately stopped riding..."
My questions: How did Merckx refuse? Are you saying that Maertens knew he was on his own by Eddy's refusal? If Merckx stopped riding, why did Maertens try to lead him out?
