Описание:

Luis Oca a seemed doomed to live in the shadow of cyclings greatest ever rider, Eddy Merckx-The Cannibal. Their rivalry defined Oca as entire career, yet he was the one rider capable of beating the all-conquering Merckx in his prime. After an impoverished upbringing he flourished at the sport he loved and in 1970 secured his biggest victory on home soil, winning the Vuelta a Espa a, and confirming his status as a Grand Tour challenger. But it was in the 1971 Tour de France that the battle between Merckx and Oca a reached its peak when, at the Orci res-Merlette stage, he inflicted on Merckx the worst defeat he would suffer in a major Tour, with an astonishing 120 kilometre solo breakaway through the Alps.

But then came one of most gut-wrenching crashes in Tour de France history when Oca a fell heavily on a Pyrenean descent, losing his leaders jersey, and with it his best chance of destroying Merckxs reputation of invincibility. In the midst of a torrential downpour, with minimal visibility, rider after rider crashed into the injured rider as he lay prone. The following day Merckx refused to wear the leaders jersey out of respect.

It was only when Merckx was missing from the start-line in 1973 that Oca a became Spains second ever Tour de France winner. If Merckx had been present, Oca as chances of success would have been far slimmer. Further triumphs amassed before his swansong in 1976, but Oca as decline in later life reflects the immense struggle he embraced during the height of his career. An enigmatic outsider to both the Spanish and French throughout his career-never truly accepted in either country-he died in mysterious circumstances aged just 48.

A fascinating, complicated character both on and off his bike, Oca as fierce determination, impetuosity and-some would say-recklessness created some of the most beautiful and gripping episodes in the history of the sport. This is the first ever biography in English of the Spanish Merckx who remains one of the most fascinating Tour de France champions.

Описание: Eddy Merckx is to cycling what Muhammad Ali is to boxing or Pele to football: quite simply, the best there has ever been.Throughout his professional career Merckx amassed an astonishing 445 victories. Lance Armstrong, by comparison, managed fewer than 100.
Merckx was a machine. It wasn't just the number of victories; it was his remorseless domination that created the legend. In 1969 while already comfortably leading the Tour de France, Merckx hammered a further eight-and-a-half minutes out of his nearest rivals during an 85-mile solo break in the Pyrenees. He didn't just beat his opponents, he crushed them.
But his triumphs only tell half a story that includes horrific injury, a doping controversy and tragedy. He was nicknamed 'The Cannibal' for his insatiable appetite for victory, but the moniker did scant justice to a man who was handsome, sensitive and surprisingly anxious.
For Britain's leading cycling writer, William Fotheringham, the burning question remains, why? What made Eddy Merckx so invincible? In" Half Man, Half Bike," Fotheringham goes back to speak to those who were there at the time and those who knew Merckx best. The result is this extraordinary and definitive story of a man whose fear of failure would drive him to reach the highest pinnacles before ultimately destroying him.
