1969 Merckx Signed Print – Horton Collection
In 1969, one gap on Merckx's palmarès was his "home" Classic: the Tour of Flanders; he set about rectifying that in typically extraordinary fashion, riding away from the pack solo, 70km from the finish. This stunning photo from the Horton Collection captures the moment that his directeur sportif, Guillaume Dreissens, pulled up alongside the Cannibal and screamed his disapproval at the bold move. Merckx barely batted an eyelid and simply forged on to victory.
This limited edition series is set at 525 numbered lithographs to correspond with and celebrate Eddy Merckx's unprecedented 525 career victories. Each 20" x24" lithograph is printed on Utopia Silk 110 pound acid free archival quality stock using a Heidelberg press and has been personally signed by Eddy Merckx, coming with a certificate of authenticity from The Horton Collection.
