Then there’s the rotten peach story: seems our hero got a hold of a bad peach before the start of a Stage One, one year at the Tour. Soon enough the chemistry kicked in and it was time for a big number two. Unfortunately he was well into the stage so Lemond grabbed a teammate’s hat and frantically tried to stuff it down his bibs to catch the fallout. Too late. He gets a bib short full. At this point the Lycra begins to fail and there’s massive fallout onto his rear wheel. Now picture a really rainy day and the spray that comes off a road bike’s wheel. Now you’ll understand why the peleton parted like the Red Sea. But there’s more. LeMond made it to the finish but was still in critical need of a restroom. He dashed to the team van, jumped into the toilet room only to see that said tool of necessity was removed and the small area was now a closet containing stacks of Laurent Fignon post cards (they were teammates at one time). So according to Lemond, he made a chair out of the cards with a “dug out center” and spent the next hour in there.
