Product Description

Review

Utterly fabulous ...the photos are glorious, fascinating, engaging and addictive - The Washing Machine Post

Will prove irresistible for any serious collector of cycling books. ...Merckx fans tend to be 'completests' and their 'Merckx corner' of the bookshelf will look bare without this mighty tome. - The Tour

A fine book chronicling the finest year of the finest cyclist. - The Inner Ring

Sumptuous Guardian
,br >Beautifully produced...the black and white photographs are mesmerising. - Outdoor Fitness

With the wealth of faces and places on display, you could skip the words entirely and still be entertained. --Pro Cycling

Superb book , There is only one Eddy Merckx and this book is an excellent example of that. I first saw him win the Milan San Remo
when I was 11, I met him professionally when I was 19, and still watching what he does. Thanks Eddy !

Very disappointed with the content of this book. Little or no imagination .We've seen these photos before .The written content was just banter. The photos left little to evoke the passion of the era and the effort taken by Eddy and his foes. As a die hard fan I was left wanting the zeal and fire a mental toughness of the era.
