Union Preis 1970 by Werner Möller

These photos were generously shared with Ciclismo Passion by long time cycling photographer, Werner Möller, and are of the Union Preis in Dortmund, Germany. What makes this series special is that this is the only year that Eddy Merckx wore the Belgium National Championship Jersey. Merckx raced in the Belgium Nationals multiple times against great odds and resistance from his own countrymen, and was able to win the jersey once – in 1970.
