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.

Dang! Fignon’s Raleigh/Super-U TT bike is an absolute stunner.

Trench Foot.

September 27, 2010

It took a few more strides before the realisation hit my frozen brain that I was now running without a left shoe. Attempting to retrieve it involved submerging in filthy, icy water, my neck craning to avoid drowning while hands aimlessly groped in the gloop. The prospect of Wiltshire County’s coronor having to hold an inquest into some damn fool kid dying because he so badly wanted a dog-eared leather shoe back was a distinct possibility at this point. I retired from cyclo-cross racing there and then.

Nice bit of writing to be found over at the Rapha blog about the pain and perils of cyclo-cross. Only Hard men need apply. Guess that’s me then.

Hills and Trenches. Go peep.

The Giro.

September 27, 2010

A serious amount of scanning must have been done by Vuelta Italia for their Flickr spot and I must thank him/her a thousand times, as these photographs of various stages of the Giro throughout the years are like Gold.

Handsworth Park circa 60.

March 22, 2010

For folks in Birmingham you may be interested to know that this is the north Birmingham CTC racing around Handsworth park circa 1960. I wish there were more photographs of this day as it looks like they had a fantastic turnout but alas, no more pics!

Thanks John G for sending this over.

I am really sorry Kevin and Kieran but I just had to post this:

Hardy, my pal must have too much time on his hands to be re-rendering old posters like this!

Too funny. Previously seen here.

Belgium 1967.

August 25, 2009

Fantastic images here found on Flickr of a race that took place in Kermesse, Belgium 1967.

Actual photographs win over digital every single time… Is it time to burn the ‘megapixel’ perhaps?

Keirin in Black and White.

June 10, 2009

I am not sure of you had noticed but of late I seem to have gained a certain penchant for vintage cycling photographs. You gotta love old photos right?

So to keep everyone happy and also to keep the vintage theme going here are a selection of amazing pictures of some Keirin happenings.
