    Eddy Merckx Photos

    I just thought some of you would like to see these. These are from a 1972 Miroir De Cyclisme Magazine I just recently got. I might upload more of what's in them later. Enjoy!

    I think he either just shifted gears or wiped his front tire with his glove. Man is he bandaged up in that first pick.

    Note the Pino stem in the hour record pic.

    3rd pic, the man had style!

    Re pic no. 1: that should be in the dictionary next to the definition for "hard."

    Re pic no. 2: 31 miles in one hour, wool shorts, no TT bars, no space alien helmet. Unfrickinbelievable.

    Re pic no. 3: Perfection.

    You should be able to Right-click on the pictures and "save-as". After that, you can applythem as a background, screensaver, etc. If not, I can email it to you, but it should work.

    That first photo makes me feel like a big old girl's blouse. I'd be at home on the couch, nursing my wounds with a cold beer.

    Any guesses as to what year that was (centerpulls)? Sorry, I don't know my Eddy history as well as I should.

    That was his first time in the Paris-Roubaix classic in 1966.

    Yes, thanks for helping out the techno-challenged. It worked, and I have it now.

    Thanks for the great scans.

    Merckx had the greatest expressions. Here's another Paris-Roubaix one, this time from 1970:

    Looks like I'm going to post some more photos as people seem to like them. Most are in black and white though.

    Gilberto, thanks to your images I spent most of this Saturday evening reading up on the history of Eddy Merckx, instead of spending time with my family. I am now in the doghouse.

    So what kind of tire is the great one riding on in this pic? I always thought red treaded tires were more slick in the rain. And I really thought the Clement Paris Roubaix silk tires is what most riders actually used in that race and therefore the name. To my knowlege they didnt come in red.

    Here are a few scanned from International Cycle Sport (circa 1974/1975):

    1974 Tour of Italy


    Jacques Anquetil and Eddy Merckx


    1974 Tour of Lombardy


    Not sure of race but in the UK summer 1974

    Sorry about lower quality of photos but I don't have a scanner so these are photos of magazine pictures.
