With Once being the only team to hold the Golden Jersey and Nozal having had it for so many days.If he does win,does this set any new records for any of the big three stage races? Has anything like this happened before?

I think Merckx held the leader's Jersey from start to finish in a Grand Tour.

Four individuals (so naturally their teams had the jersey the whole time) have done it in the Tour. The most recent being Anquetil in 1961. Couldn't find anything on Giro or Vuelta.
