While we all probably wish Greg aged with a bit more class -- the industrious, closed-mouth transition to their golden years we've seen from Bernard Hinault and Eddy Merckx would serve as a fine example for any of us -- it's still impossible not to love him anyway. Our hero-worship of Lemond was just too darn intense in our youth to give up on him now. And this 4-pack of DVD's is first-class goosebump material. Seeing Lemond at the height of his powers isn't just a refresher course in Bike Racing History 101, it'll make you feel doe-eyed and silly in love with bike racing all over again -- just like you're teenager again. You can't beat that.You get 4 DVD's total: The '86 Tour is a 55-minute highlight reel of Lemond v. Hinault. The '89 Tour, Lemond v.

Trying to remember a show I saw on Greg LeMond once. I think it was called Driven and aired on Fit TV. I was trying to explain to a friend how facinating it was. He tells of coming off the '89 Tour victory and being passed by domestiques the next year and wondering what was happening. Ultimately ... Read More »
Tonight as Armstrong now pleads guilty to the doping he lied about for years, I think its worthwhile to appreciate Greg Lemond.
