EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a momentous event in the world of road cycling - the 1977 Glenryck Cup Professional Criterium at Eastway Cycle Circuit. The legendary Belgian cyclist, Eddy Merckx, stands tall at the forefront of this image, with Great Britain's Keith Lambert positioned just behind his right shoulder. Located in Lee Valley Park, East London (which would later become the iconic Olympic VeloPark), this race was organized by renowned boxing promoter Mike Barrett and became informally known as the Merckx Meeting. The significance of this event cannot be overstated, as it attracted not only Eddy Merckx but also other top riders from across Europe. Merckx himself is widely regarded as one of the greatest cyclists to have ever graced the sport. His presence alone elevated this competition to new heights and drew attention from cycling enthusiasts worldwide. Preserved through time by Colorsport Images and captured by Andrew Cowie on June 11th, 1977, this print serves as a testament to an era when cycling prowess reached its zenith. It immortalizes a fleeting moment where two titans of their craft shared a stage amidst intense competition and camaraderie. As we gaze upon this remarkable image today, we are reminded of the indomitable spirit that drives athletes to push boundaries and redefine what is possible in their chosen field.
