Greg Lemond Short Bio

Gregory James “Greg” LeMond (born June 26, 1961) is a former professional road cyclist from the United States, who twice won the road bike world championship (1983 and 1989) and the Tour de France three times (1986, 1989 and 1990). He is also an entrepreneur and defender of anti-doping. LeMond was born in Lakewood, California, and grew up on a ranch in the countryside on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range near Reno.He is married, his wife is named Kathy and they have three children. Gives support to charity and to many organizations.

In 1986, LeMond became the first non-European professional cyclist to win the Tour de France and is the only one in the United States that has officially won. LeMond was accidentally shot while hunting with several pellets in 1987 and thus could not compete in the next two Tours, he returned in 1989 to the Tour, and won in a dramatic way in the final stage, which was an improbable return. He defended his title successfully the following year, achieving his third and final victory in the Tour in 1990, which made him one of the only seven cyclists to have won three or more Tours. in December of 1994. He managed to reach the United States Cyclists Hall of Fame in 1996.

LeMond was the first American to win the World Elite Road Cycling Championship, the first professional cyclist to sign a million dollar contract and the first cyclist to appear on the Sports Illustrated cover when the magazine named him the sportsman of the year in 1989. During his career, LeMond defended many advances in professional cycling, such as the introduction of aerodynamic “triathlon” aerobars and the frames of bicycles made of carbon fiber, [11] that later commercialized through his company LeMond Bicycles. Other interests include restaurants, real estate and sports equipment. [12]

LeMond opposes the use of drugs to improve performance and there have been times when its commercial companies have suffered from its anti-doping stance, such as in 2001, when it first accused Lance Armstrong of doping and created a conflict that eventually led to the dissolution of its Lemond Bikes brand in 2008, which was licensed by Armstrong’s main sponsor, Trek Bicycles. [13] [14] Being the only American to have won the most important cycling race , LeMond has not enjoyed the public status expected of a public figure like him, [14] but continues to publicly oppose the doping and inefficient leadership of the UCI, the International Cycling Union. In December 2012, LeMond said it was willing to replace the UCI president provisionally if necessary. [15] In December 2013, the LeMond brand revived, made in partnership with TIME Sport International. [16]
