Eddy Merckx Cycles Wants Pro-Tour Team

MEISE, Belgium – “It is a sleeping beauty”. That’s how Pieter Vansynghel characterized Eddy Merckx Cycles, the company he took over last year. This morning Vansynghel together with icon Eddy Merckx presented the new styling of this road race brand.

Maybe they wanted to tell more, but could not because of loose ends. Eddy Merckx mentioned between the lines that he wanted to return as a sponsor of a pro-tour team. “We are still negotiating about the sponsor contract so we can’t tell you anything about that.”

“After we participated in the company last year, we did not change the structure”, says Pieter Vansynghel, CEO of Eddy Merckx Cycling and representative of investors Sobratis. “Eddy is still the man of the company.” His name and face are extremely valuable for the company.
