You heard it here...

Thinking of dripping some of your hard earned cash on a new steed?

Perhaps it's time to think again, Eddy "The Cannibal" Merckx - the man who could arm wrestle Lance for the title of 'worlds greatest ever cyclist' has fessed up.

He's just signed a deal for his bike company to provide Quick-Step with bikes for next season. His quote..? Well he started unsurprisingly with "I am proud to take the plunge with a top team like Quick-Step, our bikes are top and can certainly stand alongside the other brands. " (note excellent Euro use of the word 'top')

but then popped in the winner "But in cycling it is not like in the Formula 1, where the car makes the difference."

You speak the truth Eddy - you speak the truth.
