Dan,

The CR page is factually incorrect. The winner of the 1971 TdF was Eddy Merckx. The podium at the final was: 1. Eddy Merckx (Bel) en 96h45'14" 2. Joop Zoetemelk (Hol) à 9'51" 3. Lucien Van Impe (Bel) à 11'06"

A great source for historical race results can be found at: http://www.memoire-du-cyclisme.net

I find this site to be the single best repository of historical race statistics on the web.

I was wondering if someone could help me set the record straight on the TDF winners and Zeus.The CR spain page: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Spain/zeus.htm Says that Luis Ocana beat Eddy Merckx in 1971.My searches show that Ocana crashed in 1971, and won in 1973. <snip> .................................
