I wonder who took this classic photo of Eddy Merckx?
It's really hard to find any information about it on the net. But someone might find it or has got a Merckx book with references. It would be fantastic to see the full photo with the complete bike.

Yes roadbikes with tight geometry (criterium?) has attractive looks.

But who took the photo? What's the name of the photographer?

I don't think so, he is notably posing and the bike is correctly adjusted to look good in a photo.
