Cycling deity Eddie Merckx suffered a bad head injury this week from a bicycle crash. Most of you that have donned the spandex know that Eddie Merckx won all the Grand Tours of cycling, and won both the TDF and Giro 5 times!
-Eddie was such a rabid competitor that he tried to win EVERY stage when he competed in the Tour de France, rather than focusing on time trials and mountain stages. He did not believe in merely conserving energy in the peloton during sprint stages, and sharing the podium appearances with the sprinters.
-We hope Eddie Merckx recovers to ride the passes again.
