Need another reason to attend Seattle Bicycle Expo this year?
How about Axel Merckx?
Axel hails from a 100% world-class European pedigree and cycling background. It’s going to be fascinating to hear him talk about growing up around his famous dad (Eddy Merckx) and riding the pro circuit with many of the top teams in the world. He has been close with Lance Armstrong on many levels, riding with Team Motorola back in the 90s and now becoming the director for the Trek Livestrong U-23 Pro team this year. I’m excited to hear about his role as a “super-domestique” rider for many of these these teams and his transition into coaching and management. I hope you’re excited, too!
Axel will appear at 12:20 p.m. on the REI MainStage, Saturday, March 12, and then later that same afternoon–3:30 p.m. on the Raleigh Stage.
