We need some clarification on the question! Are we talking in the same year or just a Tour winner who rode Paris-Roubaix at some point in their career? I was thinking the latter.euro-trash said:I don't think Indurain rode Roubaix after he won the tour. Lemond was out of shape in the Spring of 1990, so I don't think he rode Roubaix that year.
Lemond, 1989? He struggled that year too, so I could be off, but that's my guess.
I doubt Delgado rode Roubaix in 1988.
Roche, in 87? I don't know.
I'm almost positive Lemond rode Roubaix in 1986.
Right, but the original question was definitely won the Tour and rode Paris-Roubaix. I'm almost certain Hinault was the last to win both.Howzitbroke said:Lemond never won PR. His best was 4th in 86.
LeMond was the first American world champion ... '83, I think. I don't recall that he won any one of the one-day classics.Dwayne Barry said:Did Lemond win any significant one-day races, was he a world champion? I'm inclined to say he didn't.
Other than the 1983 & 1989 World Road Race championships, the closest he came was 1983. He came second to Kelly in a 4 way sprint ahead of Adri Van Der Poel and Hennie Kuiper. Other than that there's 3rdin the '84 LBL and 4th in the '85 PR, not to mention 7th in RVV that year too.Dwayne Barry said:Did Lemond win any significant one-day races, was he a world champion?

Well, you'll have to go back quite a ways further to find the first American cycling World Champion - at least to 1898, when Major Taylor won the Sprint World Championship.Allez Rouge said:LeMond was the first American world champion ... '83, I think.
We're in Pro Cycling so Lemond is the man on the road and Major Taylor on the track.Mark McM said:if you are talking the first American Road Race World Champion in the modern era, then you'd still have to go back a little further to Audrey McElmury in 1969. Even Beth Heiden won the the World Championship Road Race before Lemond (Heiden won in 1980).
You're slipping!atpjunkie said:for other riders in P-R. 1992, 1993 he gave himself for Duclos Laselle (suspension fork era). He rode with a young Museeuw as well 89-90(?) ADR, Tchmil won if memory serves me right.
