'Above Merckx.'

No one else has ever been in the frame with the Badger. Not even in the frame. Not even Merckx? Oh, no. Above Merckx. The Badger had the greatest athletic potential of any rider ever. By far.

That's true, without a doubt. He and Miguel Indurain were the last clean riders to win the tour 5 times and on steel bikes. His riding style is my favorite of all the great cyclists to watch and to imitate when I ride in a group as well.
