Eddy Merckx, 1969 Paris-Roubaix


Eddy Merckx “525” Limited Edition

The spring classic Paris-Roubaix is fondly known as the Hell of the North. The race, one of road racings oldest, is often wet and muddy and takes the riders over rough cobbled roads. Eddy Merckx is seen here attacking here in the fabled Trouée d’Arenberg (Arenberg Forest) at the 1969 edition of Paris-Roubaix. Merckx won Paris-Roubaix three times. He holds the astounding record of 525 victories during his professional cycling career.

Despite our efforts to find the name of the photographer of this image, it currently remains a mystery. As was common practice at the time, original photographs often had no reference as to the name of the photographer. Rather, there were crop marks and other notations written on the back of the original photograph that was used in the print publication process. As always, we welcome any knowledge regarding the awesome photographers that so deftly captured and continue to capture the vibrant landscape of cycling.
