Eddy Merckx in the Belgium Champion Tricolore of Molteni
Eddy Merckx got the black-yellow-red jersey in 1970 when he won the National Championship of Belgium with the FAEMA team. When he switched to Molteni, the jersey moved with him and the name Molteni was put on the jersey. In 1971, his teammate Herman van Springel won the national title, and so he was able to take the jersey over. Herman Van Springel was a great cyclist who became Eddy Merckx's chief helper on the Molteni team in 1971. Van Springel's nickname is "Monsieur Bordeaux-Paris" because he won this race seven times.
The Italian professional cycling team Molteni was active in the cycling world for a long time, from 1958 to 1976. Molteni was a salami producer based in Arcore, in the region of Milan. The team won 663 stages in total.
