One of the coolest things about my job the last 20+ years has been the ability to meet cyclists of all kinds. Far and away, my best cycling celebrity encounter was with 5 time Tour de France victor, Eddy Merckx and his son, Axel, at a trade show years ago. A class act and a big inspiration to us in the development of our jersey prints this summer.
There will be plenty of tributes to Mr. Merckx on the 50th anniversary of his 1st Tour de France win. Not only does the Tour begin in his hometown of Brussels on the 50th anniversary of his first Tour victory, but it’s also the 100th anniversary of the yellow jersey which he has worn more times than anyone else. We felt it important to give a nod to these milestones with this summer’s TDF Collection…
Congratulations to Eddy Merckx on being honored on his 50th anniversary with the first 2 stages in his home town of Brussels. The eyes of all of us cycling fans are upon you this weekend – PROOST!
