Allez, Eddy!

Synopsis: The eleven year old cycling talent Freddy is the son of a butcher in an idyllic village in no man's land. His isolated life is turned upside down completely in 1975 when the first supermarket in the village opens its doors. To mark the opening the supermarket organizes a cycling race and the winner of that match will meet Eddy Merckx. Freddy's father is a fervent opponent of the supermarket and the competition, but Freddy subscribes behind his back. By participating in the race a new world opens, not only for Freddy, but also for all those around him.

In the beginning

God created the heaven and the earth,

the animals and the plants.

In five days.

And everything God created was perfect.

But Mum says that on the sixth day

God made a mistake.

Because that's when he created Man.

We've seen it.

Shitty pants!

- Turd face!


- Stay there. Turd face!

And to help the people

He had created with a defect,

God created the doctor.

That doctor told me

there's a wire missing

between my head and my bottom.

The two aren't connected...

and that's why I keep messing my pants.

But God forgot to tell the doctor

how to put my defect right.

So now I have to wait for a prescription

to be sent down from heaven.

It's best If I don't go out on my own

because no good will come of it.

Like in the case of Martje,

Sien The Horse Man's daughter.

Everyone admired Martje.

Until they discovered that

Martje had a huge lump on her stomach.

From then on

no one listened to Martje any more.

They just looked at her stomach

and laughed.

No one ever heard Martje, Sien

The Horse Man's daughter, sing again.

Because people don't like

children who are different.

People don't like

children who are different.

That's why it's best

not to go out without me.


- Yes?

D'you hear me?

- Yes, Mum.

...the 62nd Tour de France,

setting off from Charleroi.

This year Eddy Merckx hopes

to go down in history

by winning it for the sixth time

and beating the French record holder,

Jacques Anquetil,

who won the Tour de France five times.

Frenchman Bernard Thvenet

won the Dauphin.

Can Eddy Merckx stay ahead of him?

Will the Cannibal be able to

fend off Lucien Van Impe?

For the next three weeks we will

be treated to a fantastic race.

140 riders, 14 teams, 22 stages...

The first riders have completed

the 6 km prologue.

The young Italian,

Francesco Moser, is in the lead

but all eyes are on Eddy Merckx.

Can he, here in his own country...

Fien, Marleen, Briek!

Pull your socks up.

Your bow is untidy.

Briek, I can hear the drums!

- I'm coming, Mum.


- Yeah, I'm coming.

The procession.

- Merckx is about to start the Tour.

You don't abandon Mary with impunity.

- Merckx neither.

You were created in the image of God,

not in the image of a cyclist.

Today Merckx is God.

- Andre Dermul, you should be ashamed.

There is only one God

and that's me.


- Yes, Dad.

What's up?

- Come on, son. For goodness' sake.

I won't be gone long. OK?


Eddy Merckx who won last year,

beating Raymond Poulidor by 8 minutes.

Eddy Merckx who has won

more than 500 races.

Eddy Merckx, our...

One rider will start before him,

the one who came second last year...

The riders are at the start,

the official is counting down.

Five seconds. Three...

Two, one, go!

Excellent start by Merckx.

What power, what pedalling!

The beast has been released!

Merckx passes the flag for

the final kilometre. 800 metres to go.

600 metres.

Will Eddy Merckx do

what everyone is expecting him to do?

Another 100 metres.

50, 40, 30 metres.

Eddy Merckx has set another time record.

Eddy Merckx left them all behind.

Well done, Eddy Merckx.

Well done!

Merckx is unbeatable.

Come on, Eddy, you are our hero!


What was that?

I think it's for the supermarket.

- Supermarket?

Yes. They're going to sell

everything under one roof.

Meat, fish, vegetables, shoes.

All together in the same shop.


- Next to Achille's field.

Meat next to underwear.

Who's silly idea was that?

They're going to sell racing bikes too.

- Racing bikes?

No one will want to shop there.
