Bill Strickland's Top Content

One day back in 2008, I sit down to lunch and get to talking about Eddy Merckx with the other guy at the table, a cyclist. Stuff like: Merckx used to ride 35,000 kilometers a year. Or: his salary was never more than the equivalent of 125,000 euro, even during the peak of his career, when he won a staggering one-third of all the races he entered. He rode a 52x14 when he set the hour record. . We order a 1998 Chateau Cantelys, and a big, thick steak for me because I’ve been riding a lot, and a simple grilled sole for the other guy because he says he hasn’t been on a bike in two weeks. We get thin, glass tumblers of creamy asparagus soup, which we sip like cocktails. Then we dig into a heaping bowl of french fries. . That’s when Eddy Merckx, my lunch companion, looks at me and says he never understood why he was called The Cannibal. “I never ate a person,” he says. . We sit there at lunch, Eddy and me, in a little tavern in Belgium, and he says, “Anyway, what is a nickname? What does it mean?” . He won 5 Tours de France, taking 35 stages and spending 96 days in yellow. He won the Giro d’Italia 5 times, wore its pink jersey for 76 days. He won the amateur and pro world championships. He won 7 times at Milan-San Remo, 3 at Paris-Roubaix, 5 at Liege-Bastogne-Liege, 3 at Fleche Wallone, 2 at the Tour of Flanders, the Tour of Spain and Tour of Switzerland, set the hour record, won six-day races at Gent, Milan, Grenoble, Munich, Zurich, Berlin, and in his 12-year pro career from 1965 to 1977 won 445 races, or about 37 a year. Starting with cyclocross on January 5 and ending with a six-day race in mid November, he once raced 190 days in a single season. . We sit there at lunch, Eddy Merckx and I, our plates pushed back, and look at each other for a few seconds. I’m wondering if part of what makes him who he is is that he doesn't understand why he is known by the word that embodies who he is. . A is for Attack: Always be attacking. . . . #merckxmondays #eddymerckx #bicycle #bicyclelife #bicyclelove #bicycling #bikelife #bikelove #bikestyle #cycling #cyclinglife #cyclingstyle #cyclist #cyclistlife #ilovetoridemybike #mybikelife #ridelife #roadcycling #theartofcycling
