Cycling is no exception to this. Style is at the heart of the sport and when it comes to the lycra clad heroes, riding the tour through the Pyrenees, there is one thing that makes the most exceptional cyclist even more special, style. If you were to ask a group of cyclists who they deemed to be the best representative of cycling style from the pro peloton, past or present, I am sure 90% of them would say Eddy Merckx. King Eddy not only ate up all the competition in practically every major race that he entered, but he also looked great doing it. Effortless at times and without a hair out of place, Merckx set the bar high and showed what riders could achieve with a lot of hard work and a little bit of hair styling. His Molteni kit of the time is now a cultural flag of honour within the cycling world and is a hallmark of the perfect combination of rider, clothing and swagger all rolled into one.
