Description
The official Tour de France story of the five time winner they nicknamed 'The Cannibal'.

Eddy Merckx dominated the sport of cycling for a decade from the mid-1960's to the mid-1970's in a way that no-one before had managed to. In total, Eddy Merckx was victorious in 525 professional races, an astonishing 35% of all the races he entered. Whether Eddy was racing in a track pursuit at a half-forgotten velodrome in Belgium or the Giro d'Italia itself, he always raced with the hunger and desire of a true champion.

However, like all cyclists, it would be for his exploits in the Tour de France that Eddy would be remembered most. This DVD covers all of Merckx's Tour triumphs, from his maiden victory in 1969 when he won every jersey on offer, to the legendary battle with Luis Ocana in 1971 and his final brave attempt in 1977.

This astonishing story is told using superb archive racing footage as well as exclusive interviews with Eddy Merckx himself and many of the greats who rode with him, including Raymond Poulidor, Lucien Van Impe and Bernard Thevenet.

This is the story of Eddy Merckx A true champion.
