Chance to i-ride out with Eddy Merckx up for grabs

Eddy Merckx Cycles is offering a ride with the man himself – plus a €7k bike – to boost a children’s charity.

Visitors to the Eddy Merckx Cycles website can take part in a contest to win a Quick Step EMX-5 Teambike (worth €7,795) and cycle with Eddy Merckx. With each registration €10 eurocents will automatically be donated to Merckx’s favourite cause – the Children’s cardiology research department at University Hospital Leuven.

Everyone can participate once a day until the contest closes on August 1st 2011.

The fifth Eddy Merckx classic takes place on September 2011 in Eugendorf near Salzburg, with a choice of two routes for participants. Find out more at www.eddy-merckx-classic.com
