He canned it because of his life falling apart at the time - Details were in the ProCycling magazine.
It's split down the middle - half think he's a whiny, poor sport who came unglued when Armstrong eclipsed his career. The other half think he's still the real deal - the original, and someone who raced clean. No doubt the truth is a bit of both but I truly believe he's much more of a gentleman and a sportsman than Armstrong ever was or ever will be...
Any US forummer able to tell us the US Joe Public viewpoint on LeMond ?
Do they know who he is/was, approaching 30 years after his retirement, in a country obsessed with Baseball, American Football, Basketball and Nascar
He did bring lawyers into the sport
