Eddy Merckx was awarded the black-yellow-red jersey in 1970 when he won the national championship of Belgium under the FAEMA flag. With the transition to Molteni, the jersey moved automatically and the name Molteni was added. In 1971 his teammate Herman van Springel won the national title from Molteni and he was able to take over that jersey from Eddy. Herman Van Springel was a great cyclist who became Eddy Merckx's foreman in the Molteni team in 1971. In 1968 Herman finished second in the Tour de France - he lost in the last time trial to Jan Janssen. Van Springel's nickname is “Monsieur Bordeaux-Paris” because he won this race seven times.
