Merckx 69 documents Eddy Merckx in 1969 - considered to be the best year of Merckx's road cycling career. Written by a close friend of Merckx, this beautifully produced book features previously unpublished photographs by Tonny Strouken - who spent most of 1969 following Merckx during his epic racing season.

Featuring a prologue from Eddy Merckx, this is a lovingly produced paean to one of cycling's greats, in this, his 69th year.
