Hopefully Greg is okay. Knowing what we all know now about Lance, sure makes Lemond's career and accomplishment look all the much better in retrospect. Many forget the physical hardships he endured - nearly killed by a gunshot before returning to form and winning the Tour again in 1989. Then, and still, the most exciting, and dramatic ending to a Tour De France, IMO.
LeMond became America's first Tour de France winner in 1986 ------------ Greg Lemond is not only the first but the only American winner of the Tour de France.
Let's hope he is OK. He was right on all these years about Armstrong.
