The world road race championships are with us this coming weekend, here's a picture of the finish of the 1976 edition in Ostuni in Italy ... Freddy v Francesco ... Agony and Ecstasy... The Ogre floors the Sheriff ... In the closing stages of gruelling race, Eddy Merckx amongst others had attacked early to create a small elite group ... Francesco Moser nicknamed "The Sheriff" from the Italian team attacked on the final winding, wet descent, he took many risks as he shot down the hill with only the Belgian Freddy Maertens "The Ogre" who had used an old mechanics trick to treat his tubes with red wine vinegar to expell water thus increasing handling in the wet could follow ... The two worked together and created a comfortable gap ... Maertens was a powerful all rounder with a ferocious sprint, was favourite to win ... Moser attacked fiercely twice but Maertens countered easily ... Finally Moser decided on a Machiavellian strategy and offered Maertens first 6, then 8 and finally 10 million Belgian Franks to let Moser win and take the rainbow jersey ... But for Maertens the prestige and allure of the iconic rainbow jersey was priceless and he shook his head ... They sprinted, Moser held the lead until 20 metres before the line before Maertens flashed past him into the history books to take the gold medal and the rainbow jersey ... Moser would have his revenge the following year becoming world champion in San Cristobal in Venezuela ... Interestingly Maerten's last bidon or water bottle in the final of the race contained a special mixture of champagne, sugar and caffeine for an extra boost!! (must try this) ... He is now curator at the Ronde Van Vlaanderen Museum in Oudenaarde, Belgium where I met him in 2012 (another fantastic museum for cycling fans) ... A gentleman with many a great story ... His dutch only autobiography "Freddy" is out now and a great read, definitely a must for cycling fans ... Maertens and Moser ... Legends both ... #thewelgian #freddymaertens #francescomoser #legends #worldcyclingchampion #ostuni1976 #cyclinghistory #cyclinglegend #vintagecycling #leroica #centrumrondevanvlaanderen #rvv #tourofflandersmuseum #instacycling #cyclingfans

Vuelta 1977. Freddy Maertens wins the General Classification with 13 victories in 21 stages. He was overall leader from start to finish and also won the Green points jersey, as pictures. Flandria was also going to win the Team Classification but they sold it to TEKA for 6250 euro. Until today Freddy still has the record of 13 stage wins in a Grand Tour. 🚴🇧🇪
