Hello, I would like to know, if Eddie Merckx is the only rider in history to have won the Tour Suisse and Tour France in the same year, why is Pinot riding to win the Tour Suisse???? I am a massive fan of his, my favourite rider to be honest and I really had hopes for him this year as Contador cannot win Giro and TDF, Nibali last year won a weak TDF and with Quintana and Froome looking good, this question perplexes me. Surely, firstly the Tour de Suisee wil lstill be in Pinots legs and secondly history is a remarkable marker and the fact only Mercx has done it says its not impossible but highly unlikely. Can anyone shine light on this?????
