Essential Viewing.

If you like cycling and you know of the man Eddy Merckx you should endeavour to get your mitts on this.

La Course en tete/The greatest show on earth is a fantastic documentary and a great chance to see ‘The Cannibal’ in all his glory.

The DVD is split into two films. The first is La Course en Tete ( head of the course ) and focuses on Merckx himself and his great career.

The second film is The Greatest Show on Earth, and a very captivating film on the 1974 Giro d’Italia. It shows Merckx, and all his rivals very well. You’ll come away cheering for Jose Manuel Fuente, the greatest climber of his generation who was one of the only men with the grit to attack Merckx.

Honestly this is a great watch and for anyone who loves a bit of old footage this is like the holy grail.
