The road to Alpe d'Huez

As part of our June 2016 pilgrimage in the Alps, we will tell you the tale of Greg’s adventures on the most famous mountain of the Tour de France : Alpe d’Huez. The first part is about 1984 to 1986. The second part is just about 1989 while the final part contains 1990 to 1991, the last year Greg LeMond climbed Alpe d'Huez in a professional cycling race.
A stage in the Tour: Jaca - Val Louron 1991

In the 13th stage of the Tour de France 1991 Greg LeMond lost 7 minutes. The first time this happened to him in his race. We tell you all about this moving story.
Heaven in the North

In 1992 a very strong Greg LeMond helped his teammate Gilbert Duclos-Lassalle to win his first Paris-Roubaix. The Z team was ruling the race. For one day the hell of the North became heaven.
The first yellow jersey

A 21 years old Greg LeMond wins his first yellow jersey. But it was not in the Tour de France. Let's get back to 1982 in the Tour de l'Avenir, a race for young talented riders like, Greg LeMond.
Another way of life

As a World Champion Greg LeMond often has been criticized by the press and other people. Amongst them Eddy Merckx. But who was the last world champion winning the Tour de France and getting top 10 results in the classics?
They did it together

Who knows what would have happened to Greg LeMond if Kathy LeMond wasn't there for her husband. We take you back to the Giro and Tour de France 1989 where she supported her husband and kept him on the bike.
8 seconds

No one believed in the chances of Greg LeMond before the last stage of the Tour de France 1989. At the end of the day only 8 seconds decided who would win the 3 week event. We tell you how we experienced the most exciting afternoon in the history of cycling.
