Union Preis 1975

Werner Möller, cycling photographer great, shares the next in his Union Preis series from 1975. In these impeccable photos include so many greats, such as the winner that year Rik Van Linden. Also including Didi Thurau, Peter Post, Hennie Kuiper and, of course, Eddy Merckx.

It was a pivotal time in cycling history with Merckx having just lost his first Tour de France (VIEW VIDEO HERE) and his grip of dominance on cycling with only the 1976 Milan-San Remo being his greatest win thereafter.

Hennie Kuiper’s win weeks after the 1975 World Championships was that he beat Merckx and De Vlaeminck on their home territory (VIEW VIDEO HERE), much to the satisfaction of Hennie’s coach Jan Janssen, who had lost to Merckx 10 years prior.
