In Eeklo, Belgium, Eddy Merckx competed in his first cyclocross race, an event that also marked the first victory of his 'cross career. It attests to Merckx' multiple talents as a racer, his character, and his determination to win any competition he took part in. The Eeklo 70 is constructed from a carbon frame that has geometry optimized for the grueling 'cross courses of Belgium and features extra mud clearance for even the most epic days. The carbon fork boasts a tapered steerer for precision handling on anything from the sandy fields of Koksijde to your local course. An 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain delivers reliable, smooth shifting as you battle through grit and grime, while the hydraulic disc brakes provide excellent speed modulation and stopping power over steep drops. A plush Prologo saddle and lightweight aluminum Deda cockpit round out the build on this vessel through which you can channel the bulldog determination of the greatest cycling victor of all time.
