Belgian superstar, Eddy Merckx, is arguably the greatest cyclist the world has ever known, so much so that his dominating career through the 1970s continues to overshadow the achievements of today’s bicycling supermen. Merckx won just about every race that was worth winning–including 7 victories in Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 3 wins in Paris-Roubaix,
and 2 victories in the Tour of Flanders. He was a World Champion no less than 3 times and won both the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France an incredible 5 times each! Merckx’s amazing Hour Record ride in 1972 stood for 14 years.
