The Comeback: Greg LeMond, the True King of American Cycling, and a Legendary Tour de France
The Comeback: Greg LeMond, the True King of American Cycling, and a Legendary Tour de France. The first comeback is the story of Gerg LeMond’s recovery from a hunting accident to win the Tour de France by eight seconds in 1989. To put that race in context, de Visé tells us the story of LeMond’s life, from childhood on. He explains the world of cycling to those readers who may not understand the sport. The second comeback involves the rehabilitation of LeMond’s reputation following the story of doping in the world of professional cycling. Many readers will concur with de Visé by the end of this book that LeMond deserves a place at the top of the rankings of American cyclists.
