Ickx and Merckx. Merckx and Ickx.
Two great people. Two heroes. Two icons.
Two champions. Both with an impressive track record, both holders of multiple honorary titles. Both excelled in very different categories within their sport.
Two champions. Year after year.
As the site for Merckx Ickx The Race says,
First across the finish line 525 times, Eddy Merckx is the most successful cycle racer of all time. Jacky Ickx’s career is one of the richest and longest in the history of motorsport. His list of achievements is unrivaled in its variety. In 2015, Eddy Merckx and Jacky Ickx both celebrate their 70th birthday, as well as their long friendship. So it’s high time for the first major exhibition about this pair of Belgian sporting legends.
