Then you know precious little about cycling. Merckx won eleven Grand Tours - eleven is better than seven, in much the same way seven Wimbledons by a tennis player with nothing to back them up wouldn't beat Borg's eleven. Plus, Merckx has 22 wins in the biggest one-day races, the monuments (19) plus the world championships (3), compared to Armstrong's one - the WC 1993. Merckx is so much better it is no surprise there were room for several others in between, such as Coppi, Hinault, Anquetil, Bartali, Gilmondi, Kelly....
