>We are in the midst of cycling season. Several big races have already occurred, including the Giro d”Italia. On July 4th begins Le Tour de France. So let’s remember the great cyclists.

Here are three videos on Eddy Merckx – the greatest of them all.

Merckx breaking the hour record in
Mexico City, 1972

Merckx in training, and a look at
his personal life.

Merckx cries at doping
allegations, 1969.

Merckx was such a phenomenal cyclist that he is in his own category altogether. Lance, for all his Tour wins pales in comparison to Merckx.
