Half Man, Half Bike

The Life of Eddy Merckx, Cycling's Greatest Champion

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Leading cycling writer William Fotheringham presents the biography of the greatest cyclist in history, Eddy Merckx; the extraordinary man who is to cycling what Muhammad Ali is to boxing. This definitive history chronicles his life, examining both the ups and the downs. Throughout his professional career Merckx amassed an astonishing 445 victories and exhibited a remorseless sense of domination that created his legend. But his triumphs only tell half of a story that includes horrific injury, a doping controversy, and tragedy. To discover the background of the Belgian cyclist's former invincibility, the author spoke with those who were there at the time and those who knew Merckx best. This is the singular tale of a man whose fear of failure would drive him to reach the highest pinnacles before ultimately destroying himself.
