The Hour: Eddy Merckx | Cycling Art Print
The greatest rider of them all and at the very peak of his powers, set a record many thought would be unbeatable. Following a year in which he won the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and no fewer than three Monument classics, Merckx had the world at his feet. What next? He turned his attention to the final, unconquered frontier - The Hour.
Riding a traditional steel track bike, in traditional clothing, Merckx set an unimaginable new record - the world's best rider riding his finest hour.
