Thanks. Looks like a stunning area where they were cycling. And I bet Lemond can still descend like a demon on a bike.

Rapha makes the best videos for sure. Not sure that Lemond's reputation needed to be reclaimed. Take away all the hoopla and controversy going on and Greg comes out the clear winner because he's just simply a much nicer guy. There are a lot of people out there who don't realize how big of a D-bag LA is, before the spotlight, before the cancer and yellow wristbands, race wins and TDF streak, he's been that way all his egomaniacal life.

A great cyclist and it would seem a great man re-reading his biography on wikipedia. It also reminded me of what a snivelling **** Landis was to use his sexual abuse against him.

I remember reading a piece by Phil Anderson where he caught up with Greg at the Tour a few years ago. For old times sake they went out for a few hours and Phil said that he's still pretty quick and Anderson has kept himself in good shape!
