On My Wishlist: Merckx 69

via bloomsburysport

Eddy Merckx... what more can be written about the greatest cyclist ever?  I say plenty.

I have already enjoyed the three unforgettable books: Half-Man, Half-Bike by William Fotheringham and Eddy Merckx: The Cannibal by Daniel Friebe. And the rare photographs, many that I've never seen before, of Merckx 525. No this isn't a book review - more so a book on my wish-list. The book is, Merckx 69 by Tonny Stroucken and Jan Maes. Why 69? Cleverly to coincide with the Cannibal turning 69 years old (June 17, 1945) and to honor his eventful 1969 campaign - his finest year... and a worthy book to add to my collection.

Let's play... Follow The Leader.
