    loved it. Lemond looks like he ate Jeremy Dunn, but I bet he still goes pretty damn fast. Those continental guys seemed genuinely in awe of who they were riding with.

    Cool video but yeah the writing is awful. I don't know why they even let Jeremy Dunn turn on his Macbook, he is the sole reason the Embro mag is unreadable.

    Yes, LeMond has certainly worked hard on that 'downhill muscle'. He was punishing those kids on the decents.

    Seriously, I have two LeMonds hanging in my house and glad to have them.

    I think he's actually lost weight recently. He used to be quite big.

    Ahhhh...Markleeville. Drinkin' brews, countin' bras, and soaking in the hot springs at the Cutthroat Saloon. Great riding there.

    I could be mistaken, but I don't think he is involved with Embro mag anymore

    The home they visited wasn't where Greg grew up as was stated. That was about 20 miles north, north of Carson City where a road race course was laid out and used often. Story goes that when the north state road championship passed by their front door and he and his dad were hooked on bikes and racing.
    ...just to win a salami in ridiculous races.

    Great to hear Greg talk about the pleasure riding the bike gave him.
    So much of that seems pushed to the side these days, where racing
    and doping is all serious business. Just great to see him smile.

    Credit where credit is due - the picture is from the Rapha site. The man still looks fantastic on the bike. People of girth take note. You don't need your bars up high.
    I wonder when this all was relative to the _____ ________ news. The story is of a genuine guy and all the anecdotes of piss and vinegar are non-existent. Nice. Seems like the old Greg; a changed and new man since the weight of that story is off his shoulders.

    Very cool video - thanks for sharing the link. Greg really seems like a nice guy to ride with. It's hard to imagine all of the stories that he could tell when out riding.

    Didn't want to say it this morning but this is totally Rapha's response to the news. New chapter in US cycling and all that. They better hope Team Sky doesn't ruin it for them, if you know what I mean. They're a lot smaller than Nike.

    Great video. How can you not like Greg? Seeing some of those race videos brings me back to younger days.
