Blog: Talking Tour with Greg LeMond

By Dan Friebe, Procycling | Sunday, July 6, 2008 5.20pm

He'll swear that no mischief was intended, but there was certainly a touch of irony about Greg LeMond's decision to visit the 2008 Tour de France on a day which should have belonged to his old friend turned racing foe Bernard Hinault.

Today's second stage to Saint Brieuc took in many of the roads where Hinault learned his craft, but it was LeMond who was besieged by fans, well-wishers and journalists in the start village in Auray. Hinault, of course, is on the Tour every day in his PR role for race organisers ASO. LeMond's sojourns at the Grande Boucle are rarer and, by extension, more celebrated.

Procycling's Dan Friebe was among a group of journalists who spoke to LeMond during stage 2. Click here to find out LeMond's thoughts on this year's race, Cadel Evans and good omens.
