I like Lemond too, if his brother-in-law had of been a bit more discriminating with his targets Lemond might have won 5 tours, he could have won in 85 if not for the team politics. And he was certainly a big factor in bringing recognition to pro cycling to the US and Canada.Tschai said:They wasted Lemond. After it was over, even Lemond seemed shocked that they were ending it so soon. Most unfortunate was the fact that Hummer didn't even bother to ask Lemond about this year's tour, who Lemond liked, etc. Use the man's expertise and knowledge and ask some relevant questions dammit. My god!!! It was pathetic.
Lemond is much more entertaining to listen to than Lance ever was or will be. He was a better racer too!!
