Le Mond had to get old 'n fat before he got into Rapha. I hear he's doing night classes in orthodontistry too :wink:

Surely the Rapha image is about looking like a friendless sociopath? They got the wrong American.

Is he the massively fat guy? Can't see how it helps Rapha's "sexy" image.

Seems like a lot of ex-pros maintain their tour calorie intake long after the Champs Élysées.

I think if you watched cycling in the 80's, Lemond is a total hero. I would still say he's my all time fave cyclist and if I rode bikes I'd probably be Rapha's target audience.

Quite a lot of rapha stuff is a rip off from what ive seen but the video is great and greg was a great rider back in the day.

I dident realise charles bronson had been released and had ventured into road riding?

I'd completely forgotten about Greg's slightly knees out pedalling style.

Total total hero. In fact a 'Hero for life' - rather than some of the more short lived all-American heros....

Awesome clip.

Bring back Lemond bikes. Please!

Well yea and no. He was the first / only "United State-ian" to wear yellow. Alex Stieda was the first North American rider to wear yellow, in 1986.
