If he weighed 75 kg on the morning of the Hour Record, are we sure he was/is nearly 6&#39;1&quot; ? That would have made him awfully slender, even for a top cyclist. I still woiuld like to see his vital statistics.

Why not make next year&#39;s Cirque theme &quot;Race Bikes,&quot; with special emphasis on marques Merckx was associated with. Try to also get ephemera from collections (Horton etc.): like jerseys, printed material, musettes, heck even a retrospective of the Adidas shoes which carry his name.

As long as we don&#39;t behave like Trekkies and all go around in faux Molteni jerseys (yep, i got one too!) then maybe we won&#39;t freak him out. Invite him well in advance.

Special outdoor event: lawn party featuring Belgian beer, moules, frites dipped in mayonnaise.

Emanuel Lowi Montreal, Quebec (where we fully appreciate Belgian cuisine and ride on our own Eddy Merckx &#39;74 World Championship circuit)
