The Eddy files.

July 17, 2011

I have never seen such a massive collection of Eddy Merckx photographs and scans in one place, the grip is something else… There’s even a bunch of family photos up in there!

Unfortunately the owner has disabled the ability to download the files so I can’t show them here (screenshots come in handy mind you) but do yourself a favour and click through for 600% of Merckx goodness.

The Cannibal, Crushing.

November 25, 2010

A great bit of Cannibal footage. Now then, a question… Does anyone know where I can get/watch Eddy Merckx ‘in the vicinity of a cup of coffee’ from 73? I have only read of it and would love to peep it… so if you know, please get in touch!

The above shot of Eddy Merckx with his wave of trailing riders is incredible.

If you like cycling and you know of the man Eddy Merckx you should endeavour to get your mitts on this.

La Course en tete/The greatest show on earth is a fantastic documentary and a great chance to see ‘The Cannibal’ in all his glory.

The DVD is split into two films. The first is La Course en Tete ( head of the course ) and focuses on Merckx himself and his great career.

The second film is The Greatest Show on Earth, and a very captivating film on the 1974 Giro d’Italia. It shows Merckx, and all his rivals very well. You’ll come away cheering for Jose Manuel Fuente, the greatest climber of his generation who was one of the only men with the grit to attack Merckx.

Honestly this is a great watch and for anyone who loves a bit of old footage this is like the holy grail.
