Maertens waits…

Stage 5 Epernay – Montargis
The great Freddy Maertens left Montargis in 1976 headed for his seventh stage victory of that year’s Tour. The following morning’s time trial in Paris made eight and a well-deserved green jersey.

Now the curator at the Tour of Flanders Museum in Oudenaarde, the Belgian waits at the roadside for the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad to pass in this beautifully shot short film.
