Tour de France preview

Connect the three pictures:-













From Wikipedia:
In his Tour de France debut in 1969, Merckx immediately won the yellow jersey (overall leader), the green jersey (best sprinter) and the red polka-dotted jersey ("King of the Mountains" - best climber in the mountain stages). No other cyclist has achieved this triple in the Tour de France, and only Tony Rominger and Laurent Jalabert have been able to match this feat at the Grand Tour level, in the 1993 and 1995 Vueltas, respectively.

1)Eddy Merckx
2)Laurent jalabert
3)Tony Rominger(the guy in the front)
These are the three cyclists to have completed the trifecta at a Grand Tour i.e. win the General, Sprinter's and Climber's classification.
