Mr & Mrs Merckx

R & R...



I'm in the middle of reading Graeme Fife's, 'Tour de France' Edition 2006. And, it's a very informative read with stories of misfortunes, there's a lot of those, to triumphs. Quotes from various ex-pro riders & interestingly from their spouses are included. Here's a quote that humorously describes the Cannibal by his wife Claudine ...

"The trouble with Eddy is that he's been vaccinated with a bicycle spoke. A week away from the bike and nothing works." 


I hope to post a few more quotes as I come across them!

I agree, one of the funniest I've come across in a long time!
