We’ve discussed in the past here on Inkstain how Floyd did it. Now from Robbie Hunter, we get a better idea of why:
Eddy Merckx has spent a bit of time with us over the past weeks because of his son’s attachment to the team. Yesterday we found out that the night after Floyd lost the jersey and 8 minutes to the leader, Eddy went to the bookies in Belgium and bet 100 euro that he would win the tour anyway.
75 to 1 were the odds and he is laughing so hard now that the possibility is really there. The way Floyd raced today was like the way Eddy used to race in the old days, and he said it was the best races he has seen!
