Merckx 525 is the first book authorized by Eddy Merckx and the first book that he says offers a complete record of his career.
“Merckx 525 is a unique collection of exclusive photographs, including some that even I had not seen before. It is the only work authorized by me…and the first truly complete record of my accomplishments.” — Eddy Merckx
Merckx 525 celebrates the unmatchable career of Eddy Merckx, the most dominant athlete of the 20th century. Known as “the Cannibal” for his insatiable hunger to win, Merckx gobbled up 525 race victories, an unrivaled legacy lionized in this once-in-a-lifetime homage.
Presenting a rich trove of previously unpublished photographs that will dazzle fans and collectors, Merckx 525 embraces this awe-inspiring athlete’s career from promising youth in Belgium, to fabulous darling of Europe, to mud-splotched, hardened veteran of the bike-racing wars.
With authoritative text and keepsake production values, Merckx 525 digs deep to reveal the man behind the legend, cycling’s incomparable Eddy Merckx.
