The image showcases the determined and focused expression on Eddy's face as he prepares for Britain's largest track cycling event at Eastway Cycling Track in Stratford. Eddy Merckx is hailed as one of the greatest cyclists of all time, having achieved an astonishing 525 career victories, which remains unmatched by any other professional cyclist to this day. His remarkable accomplishments include winning the prestigious Tour de France - Giro d'Italia double three times in 1970,1972, and 1974. In addition to that feat, he also clinched the Giro d'Italia - Vuelta a España double in 1973.
