Amazing if true, but are you sure it wasn't a metaphor for business blackmail rather than literally pulling a firearm?

It is called trolling. Make up something in the desperate hope someone will respond to the babble. Next up something about Betsy or Lemond
LOL, Oh Im sure something about both will almost magically appear soon, you know that. I'm looking forward to ANOTHER "Lemond doped too", "he cheated too...blah blah blah" response in the near future from some socko, it never fails.

Greg is still dope.

On the 'gun' part, obviously that was buisiness pressure form trekdopestrong after Greg's comments on working with Ferrari wrt texadope. Never heard of a real gun to be honest.

He said it in a radio interview that was posted on this forum after Armstrong was stripped and he also said it to Jeremy Whittle for the book "Bad Blood".

I'm sure it was literal and not figurative.

Will post the extract and/or the interview later.

Here's a link to the part of the book where Lemond talks about the gun to the head.

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=h...tput=html_text

As it displays for me scroll down to the bottom of the first page and continue on to the second.

From here it reads to me like its probably literal but could be figurative, if you take it together with the radio interview it's almost certainly literal.

Seriously? Dude, it's clearly figurative, which is why he next states what the gun was "I was under incredible duress from the whole Armstrong camp and my whole business was at stake."

This doesn't really make one proud of that wholesome family owned business called Trek. Lemond has family ties to area near their main facilities/headquarters, didn't seem to help him a bit when Trek felt the pressure from LA. Wonder if any of LA's sponsors will be caught up in the obstruction investigation. Perhaps even a well known foundation acting through its chairman?
