Around the year 1990 Brett Horton started to collect cycling memorabilia. He couldn't have imagined the places this path would take him and the people he would meet. His collection now includes around 350,000 race photographs, jerseys, bikes, posters and numerous other items. At the 2016 NAHBS he talked to us about the 525 series of Eddy Merckx posters he is selling, and his relationship with The Cannibal.
