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!

Generally in a race of the Barrachi type, the changes are very rapid, with stints of no more than 300 yards. Altig was at the front when I started the check – and he was still there a minute later. Something must be wrong. Altig wasn’t even swinging aside to invite Anquetil through… Suddenly, on a flat road, Anquetil lost contact and a gap of three lengths appeared between the two partners. There followed one of the most sensational things I have ever seen in any form of cycle racing during my 35 years’ association with the sport – something which I consider as great a physical performance as a world hour record or a classic road race win. Altig was riding at 30mph at the front – and had been doing so for 15 minutes. When Anquetil lost contact, he had to ease the pace, wait for his partner to go by, push him powerfully in the back, sprint to the front again after losing 10 yards in the process, and again settle down to a 30mph stint at the front. Altig did not this just once but dozens of times.

Bit of a wobble-cam fest later on but great viewing nevertheless.

I have posted a photograph of this bicycle before but upon finding a few more detailed pics I could not resist the posting of it again.

This 1979 Colnago Pista is perfection in Steel. End of.
