Eddy Merckx competed in Milan-San Remo 10 times, winning seven of them. Yet another unique record of him. His last victory at this event was in 1976. La Primavera is recognized as a sprinters classic, which is what links it to the speedy SanRemo 76.

#WeRide2Brussels - A Grand Départ dedicated to Eddy Merckx

1969, the year in which Eddy Merckx won his first Tour de France. Now, 50 years later, his maiden victory is honoured with a Grand Départ in Brussels. The race organisers incorporated many similarities with the parcours back then. And Eddy Merckx has its own AG2R LA MONDIALE Team at the start to ride these famous roads, with Romain Bardet as the main man to shine in Eddy’s Tour. #ModernHeritage
