A. Col du Tourmalet 
B. Col d’Aspin 
C. Col du Mente 
Over the foggy summit of the Col de Mente, Merckx, an excellent downhill rider, plummets insanely down the narrow, mountain road. Ocana followed Merckx taking serious risks of his own. Flying through the corners the Cannibal lost control and skidded into a low retaining wall at the side of the road. Ocana trailing close behind cannot avoid the fallen Merckx and crashed heavily. Merckx was up quickly and sped away. Ocana struggled to release his cleats from the toe clips and was struck in the kidney by the pursuing Joop Zoetemelk. The Maillot Jaune lay on the ground screaming with pain.
