Quatrième de couverture :

What makes a man the greatest of all time?

Eddy Merckx is to cycling what Muhammad Ali is to boxing or Pelé 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. In 1969, while already comfortably leading the Tour de France, Merckx hammered a further eight-and-a-half minutes out of his nearest rivals during an 85-mile solo break in the Pyrenees. He didn’t just beat his opponents, he crushed them.

But his triumphs only tell half a story that includes horrific injury, a doping controversy and tragedy. He was nicknamed ‘The Cannibal’ for his insatiable appetite for victory, but the moniker did scant justice to a man who was handsome, sensitive and surprisingly anxious. Britain’s leading cycling writer, William Fotheringham, goes back to speak to those who were there at the time and those who knew him best to find out what made Eddy Merckx so invincible.

‘Merckx – a natural champion who, famously, never knew what prize money was, but regularly rode himself and others into agony and glory – is a fine choice for a writer of Fotheringham’s skill and cycling knowledge... A fascinating, often bleak portrait of a remarkable athlete and an unnerving man’
Sunday Times

‘A fine portrait of obsession’
Financial Times

‘Remarkable and impressive … everything you want to know about Merckx and more’
Cycling Weekly
