Greg LeMond-Tour de France book talk
Author Daniel de Visé discusses The Comeback (Atlantic Monthly Press), the story of Greg LeMond and the legendary '89 Tour. Greg was Lance Armstrong before Lance Armstrong. He came out of the California cycling circuit to stage an improbable conquest of European cycling and, later, a miraculous comeback from near-death to win the closest Tour de France in history. LeMond ranks among the great U.S. athletes of the past century. Yet, the meteoric rise (and catastrophic fall) of Lance Armstrong left him all but forgotten. Come relearn the story.
