A Sunday In Hell


Had a good ride this morning? Now time to check out the classic 1976 documentary about Paris-Roubaix with Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser, Freddy Maertens and Roger De Vlaeminck. This is probably the best movie ever made about pro cycling so hit play and enjoy.

Heh heh. Love it.

Found on La Gazzetta Della Bici.

Cycling Art Blog posted a really cool article about Moser breaking Merckx's Hour Record and the bike he did it on.

Check it out here.

Boardman's Superbike Goes To Museum

British cycling legend Chris Boardman recently gave his world-famous Lotus superbike (rebranded as Eddy Merckx) to the new Museum Of Liverpool. This is the bike that Boardman smashed the Hour Record with in 1996.

Along with the bike, Boardman is also handing over a piece of the Manchester Velodrome track (given to him when they resurfaced the track in 2007) and a Yellow Jersey from the 1994 Tour De France.

Eddy Merckx Stamp

I’m definitely no stamp collector (like BikeMe is) but I’m digging this new limited edition Merckx stamp from the De Post (the Belgian postal service).

Found on Cycling News.
