Merckx Mondays

Eddy Merckx, 525 victories and style icon. Seriously, that man had such rad sideburns. Classic cycling photography was so good!

*these two photos are from the Merckx 525 book.

Merckx Mondays

Let me first say that I have no idea where I found this image but I can’t let Merckx Mondays just fizzle out. Tracko‘s actually doing a pretty great job with it and once Andy gets his act together and starts posting again, I’m sure the three of us will be able to nail down Merckx content. For now, I just wanted to share this incredible Campagnolo ad…

As you can imagine, it’s tough to find somewhat original Merckx Mondays content. Not saying this is by no means original, but these excerpts from a photo album haven’t been posted all over the internet… yet.

Roleur posted an extract from L’Album d’Eddy (issue 8) on their blog and I highly suggest you check it out.

Happy Merckx Mondays! This Recent Roll post is brought to you by David Flores and Division 1, a new shop on the east side of Austin, Texas. The guys at D1 flew Mr. Flores out to paint this massive Eddy Merckx mural on the eastern façade of their new building. It’s impressive!

Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Fuji Pro400H

I receive what I would consider “gems” in the form of emails from time to time. This one in particular came from Michael in Sacramento. A lifelong Merckx fan, Michael actually got to visit the factory back in 1985, where, as he described, he was too much in awe to focus. Literally.

Amazing… Hopefully, there will be more on the site from Michael in the future. Even if I have to travel to Sacramento to document it myself.
