since Greg LeMond won his first TDF in 1986 american cyclists LeMond, Lance Armstrong and now Floyd Landis have together won the TDF more than 50% of the time (11 victories in 20 years).
this is a pretty stunning statistic when you consider how many countries compete in le tour and how shallow American participation has been.
good going guys!
