Merckx: Van der Poel can win everything, even the Tour de France


Eddy Merckx encouraged Mathieu van der Poel to become a Tour de France winner in the future if he turned more to the road. In an interview with Het Nieuwsblad, Merckx spoke with admiration of the cyclo-cross world champion, who made his sparkling classic debut last spring when he won the Amstel Gold Race and finished 4th in the Tour of Flanders.

Van der Poel has not yet made his Grand Tour debut, although the Dutchman suggested his Alpecin-Fenix ​​team could push for an invitation to postpone the Tour de France 2020, which was postponed from 29 August to September 20.
