    Great pic of Greg Lemond

    Sports Illustrated 1990. Great look of determination!

    I love Greg.

    I don't love those ridiculous Scott Drop-In bars.

    I just noted that at least the picture is authentic - he has his big mouth open! He really needs to learn to shut it, because he diminishes himself with his jealous proclamations. Some just don't do well when they lose the limelight. He used to be one of my heros. Then again, I'm not too good at picking heros - Tyler Hamilton also used to be one!

    TVT carbon.

    Like I said....I love him. Couldn't care less about what he's said or done since retirement. It's all about what he achieved on two wheels.

    One thing I like about him is that he seems to be very friendly. If you google "Greg Lemond", you'll find numerous pictures of him taking photos with "normal" cyclists, and he just seems very friendly. You don't find many world class professional athletes who are like that...

    Then I put it back to you. How can someone diss Lance Armstrong, 6 times tdf champion (soon to be 7), etc., etc. Lemond did and does. Great champion with incredible accomplishments, but that doesn't give his mouth a free ticket to bleat whatever it pleases. And bleat he does.

    Lemond was a hero for a generation of American cyclists, me included. He did things no other cyclist had done. He should have won 4 TdFs (one given to Hinault), and without the shooting incident he probably would have won more than 4.

    At shows where he signs autographs he is gracious and more patient than most.

    His comments about Lance have been out of place, Greg should take the high road and say nothing. Oh well, nobody's perfect.

    Regardless of whether or not the guy is a walking bunghole, that is a great picture.

    not related but did anybody see the latest issue of Outside mag . . . I forget the exact quote but something like: Lance claims that after he retires he will NEVER gain 40 LBs and become a fatso like Lemond

    Heh, easy to say now. Just thought I'd throw that in there for those ragging on Lemond for trashtalking.

    I have read Lemond's comments about Armstrong and agree that he should keep his mouth shut. However, I have met Greg Lemond twice and both times he was the nicest guy. In 1999, my brother-in-law won the USPRO criterium championship. In 2000, I was at a bike shop in Redlands during the Redlands Classic when my father-in-law and I were approached by Warren Gibson, who was Lemond's business manger at the time. Warren managed a high profile junior team in the late 80's that my brother-in-law had ridden for. Greg was with Warren and introduced himself by saying, "Hi, I'm Greg." Believe me, I knew who he was. He went on to offer congratulations and gave my father-in-law an enthusiastic thumbs up when we were leaving. Later that year we ran into Greg Lemond again at the Nevada City Classic. This was after my brother-in-law had won the Olympic trials. Greg Lemond was without Gibson this time but again introduced himself as "Greg" and offered congratulations and said that the Olympics were one thing he was sorry he never got a chance to do. The whole family was with us this time and he happily posed for numerous pictures. I am a fan of Lance's riding, however, having encountered him on numerous occasions both pre and post cancer I would have to argue that Lemond is a much friendlier person. It is unfortunate that Lemond has made the comments that he has.
