Hanging with a legend in Sausalito

Greg LeMond came into A Bicycle Odyssey on April 20th and I was fortunate to capture the visit in an interview. Recalling memories and history of the area in addition to walking around the shop, Greg provided over an hour of video but here is a distilled version in seven-minutes.


"LeMond was the first American man to win an elite world road championship (in 1983), the first cyclist to sign a million-dollar contract (in 1984), the first American to win the Tour de France (in 1986), and the first cyclist to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated, as its Sportsman of the Year (1989). In all “LeMonster” won two elite world titles and three Tours, as well as the Tour de l’Avenir, Criterium du Dauphine, and the Coors Classic, twice." From a VeloNews article.
