To me the 1975 Tour had some of the best lore to it. I recall seeing a newspaper photo of Merckx, after the stage where the spectator had punched him in the gut. The photo was black and white and Eddy was lying on his back, I believe in a hotel room, with his arm over his eyes, completely exhausted. That one picture was worth more than a thousand words, and I'd love to see it again if you (or anyone else) can dig it up.
