'It never gets easier, you just go faster.' Greg LeMondBeing a three-time Tour de France winner is only half of the Greg LeMond story. Equally at home on the cobbles of the spring classics as he was on the mountains of the grand tours LeMond rode a full racing season from spring to autumn. His never-say-die spirit also bagged him two World Championship golds and a hatful of podiums at the world's toughest bike races. LeMond was a talented all-rounder, with a reputation as one of the canniest and taciturn racers of his generation. He was admired by his peers and respected by many of his rivals. But things could have been very different, when in 1987 his story took a tragic turn: While out hunting, he was accidentally shot. He lost so much blood that his life hung in the balance, but his recovery was as miraculous as what happened next, when he came back to the world of bicycle racing. In LeMond: Yellow Jersey Racer, which presents LeMond's career year by year, big wins are documented with unique and exclusive photography depicting the racing times of this exceptional bike rider. Many of the protagonists in LeMond's world - rivals, team mates and friends - have been interviewed. They speak candidly about his career, how their lives crossed and his legacy in the sport of cycling. Foreword by Greg LeMond.
