Merckx introduces his stealth bike...
The most winningest cyclist ever is Eddy Merckx. His seriousness on the road gave his adversaries fits rewarding him an untouchable record of 525 wins... 445 as a professional.
The insatiable need to win also turned him into a worrier. He would have a difficult time falling asleep. So off he'd go, in the middle of the night, to fiddle on his bike.
I discover these two fun images of a 'relaxed' Cannibal without his game face on. After seeing countless images and videos of his intensity... this is so refreshing!
