Merckx Monday: The Sweater Story

MerckxSweater

Back in ‘85 I was asked to prepare a bike for Merckx to ride in a charity fun ride in Long Beach. I was asked to collect Eddy from his hotel and deliver him to the ride, which of course I was excited to do. He was quite engaging and easy to talk to, and as I was driving him to the start area I commented on how much I liked the sweater he was wearing. After we arrived and unloaded his bike I asked if I could take a couple of photos, and he was very obliging. After I snapped the photos, he promptly unzipped and handed the sweater to me saying it was his way of showing his appreciation for all that I had done for him. I wore it quite often after that, and I think at some point all of my children have worn it as well. Now it resides on the shelf of my closet, and every time I look at it I’m reminded of that special moment when I first met whom some call the greatest cyclist of all time.”
