Eddy Merckx to Autograph Copies of Cycling’s Golden Age at Interbike
Boulder, CO, September 13, 2006 — Cycling legend Eddy Merckx will autograph copies of Cycling’s Golden Age: Heroes of the Postwar Era, 1946-1967 at Interbike. Merckx, who wrote the foreword to the book, will sign books on Wednesday, September 27th from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the VeloNews booth # 3359.
Featuring previously unpublished vintage photographs, trophies, race-worn jerseys, and other invaluable cycling artifacts from The Horton Collection, Cycling’s Golden Age offers a fresh appreciation of the greatest riders of cycling’s extraordinary postwar period.
Cycling’s Golden Age covers the unforgettable years from 1946 to 1967, when cycling legends like Fausto Coppi, Gino Bartali, Charly Gaul, Jacques Anquetil, and Raymond Poulidor inspired millions to fall in love with the sport. Merckx writes, “Nearly every photograph in this book is new to my eyes, yet they bring back so many happy memories of my childhood and young adult years.”
Cycling historian Owen Mulholland shares the intimate stories behind hundreds of priceless relics, along with personal anecdotes and historical context that reflect the deep soul of cycling. With its meticulously researched text, the beauty and authenticity of Cycling’s Golden Age will make it a treasured keepsake for every fan of the sport.
