NPOV[edit]

How can a statement like "He won the 1973 tour because Eddy Merckx was not in it that year" possibly be proven true or false? MK 03:10, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC)

It is true, Merckx did not start in that tour. I saw a documentary on the "battle" between Ocana and Merckx on arte recently where that was mentioned. andy 12:34, 25 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Crash in the 1971 Tour[edit]

According to Eddy Merckx: The Cannibal by Daniel Friebe (Ebury Press, 2012, page 222, ISBN 9780091943165): "what jerky footage exists of the crash suggests that Zoetemelk may have only glanced Ocaña and that it was the Portuguese rider Joaquim Agostinho who ploughed into him. This version has been confirmed in the past by Lucien Van Impe, who witnessed the accident from the inside of the bend. It is also backed up by Johny Schleck."--Rhodian (talk) 09:19, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
