Ever dreamed of riding side by side with Eddy Merckx, the greatest cyclist of all time? Now is your chance to realise that dream. Yes, even mortals will be able to do so on Sunday, September 23, when the first Eddy Merckx Classic Bike Marathon will take place.
The event will be held in Eugendorf bei Salzburg, Austria, over distances of either 104km or 148km.
If you want to figure out whether you still have enough punch left to keep up with Eddy, just do it. He and other ex-top cyclists such as Rudi Altig have already confirmed their presence.
