Eddy Merckx - The Cannibal 18.8 Print


In stock

Designed by The Handmade Cyclist, Winchester-based producer of cycling art, ceramics and off-bike clothing that dig a little deeper into the stories behind the peloton.

Featured in issue 18.8 of Rouleur Magazine. Limited edition art print on 300 GSM paper and made to fit any A2 frame.


In 1972 The Cannibal was at the peak of his powers. The year was to yield an incredible haul: his second Giro - Tour double, Liege-Bastogne-Liege, la Fleche Wallonne, and his legendary Hour Record. And yet, as the season began, there was rare doubt. Riding in the rainbow jersey, Merckx was out of form and suffering from a broken vertebrae sustained in Paris-Nice. For the first time in over half a decade he started the first Monument of the year as an underdog.After seven painful hours on the road to Milan, Merckx showed the world the folly of doubting him. He dropped the peloton on the descent of the Poggio and soloed to victory on the Via Roma, raising the five fingers of his right hand to celebrate his fifth Milan-San Remo victory in seven astonishing years. The Cannibal was still hungry.
