Frans Verbeeck vs Eddy Merckx

Frans Verbeeck was born in Langdorp, Belgium on 13 June 1941. He was a classics specialist, his major wins include: Amstel Gold Race (1970), Omloop Het Volk (twice – 1970, 1972), La Flèche Wallonne (1974) and Brabantse Pijl (1977). He was also the national road champion in 1973. But, he was also another “eternal second”: he was seventeen times a runner-up in major one-day races. He mostly lost out these races to Eddy Merckx.
