Merckx: The Greatest

£10.00

Rouleur

"I wanted to win everything"
 
Eddy Merckx is the greatest cyclist in history. Among his 525 victories, he won five editions of the Tour de France and 19 Monuments. On the bike, he was predatory and prolific, earning the nickname of "the Cannibal" for his voracious appetite. Off it, he was anxious and enigmatic.
