Back when I wrote that Lemond had a “flawed” personality I was not aware of all the childhood trauma in his life. I now retract my statement. Lemond is indeed quirky and he is an American champion.

Strictly speaking, we all have flawed personalities. It's kind of an occupational hazard of being human.

Some of us more than others. But I see your point.

All the cyclists I have ever met have more than their fare share of quirks. I imagine many would say I fit in that category as will. We tend to gravitate to obscure passions and activities. Not necessarily a bad thing.
