About this book
Paperback edition of the bestselling biography of Eddy Merckx, one of the greatest cyclists of all time. Throughout his career, the Belgian amassed 445 victories, but his story also includes a horrific injury, a doping controversy and tragedy. Fotheringham's cycling books have sold more than 75,000 copies for Yellow Jersey.
Eddy Merckx is to cycling what Muhammad Ali is to boxing or Pele to football: quite simply, the best there has ever been. Merckx was a machine. It wasn't just the number of victories (445); it was his remorseless domination that created the legend. He didn't just beat his opponents, he crushed them.
