Froome on the other hand...............5 years of mediocrity
Per the bolded, those not following the sport around the time of Lemond's career would not remember the cycling press generally mystified why, after recovery, Lemond was not back to his race-making ways.
It was others taking EPO, not some mysterious shooting-related condition. Which, should be a clue how powerful and revolutionary oxygen vector doping really is. There's before and after EPO. Two entirely different speeds.
