If you haven't seen the excellent documentary La Course En Tete about Belgian Eddy Merckx, find a way to get your hands on it this weekend, pop some popcorn and enjoy. The first scene is the 1973 World Championships, a race that Merckx is visually gutted to have only finished 4th. What follows bounces around a bit but it does show Merckx's dedication to training and preparation that led to him winning the 1974 World Championships. No other cyclist in history has been as successful as Merckx, and the Men's 1974 Road World Championships Montreal, Canada Bibshort from Santini is a fitting tribute to The Cannibal's third and final championship. These bibs combine a classic aesthetic matching the beautiful Belgian blue jerseys worn at worlds with updated technology that will have you inspired to do your own heroic rides.
Crafted from Thunderbike Power fabric for a special compressed fit, it provides breathability and comfort while supporting the muscles. Merckx wishes he had these in 1974. The cut is race ready and fits next to skin so it can mirror all of your bodies movements. Raw cut leg cuffs sit flat and go unnoticed, a good thing. The back of the bib uppers is mesh for breathability and ventilation so you can keep your cool like the man himself. Finally, the chamois features Git Evo padding with a twist gel core that'll keep you comfortable for at least 7 hours, a tick over how long it took Eddy to get his third gold medal in Montreal.
