link you can read the wikipedia entry on LeMond. After his retirement in 1994, LeMond continued in cycling with his own line of bicycles which until recent years were distributed by Trek, the behemoth of American bicycle manufacturing.
As with many retired athletes, LeMond's post-celebrity years have not been all roses. He has demonstrated a sort of Joe-Lieberman-whiny quality that is frankly off-putting. LeMond became the scold of cycling. He correctly denounces "performance enhancing" drug regimes in the sport but then by innuendo he implies everyone is a "doper." The problem with LeMond is that you ssupect that you aren't hearing fact, you hearing a bitter competitor who resents being eclipsed in the minds of cycling community by Armstrong. It really is sad.
By the way, you will notice I used the expression, "cycling," road cycling which is the sport that LeMond, Lance Armstrong competes in is called cycling, not bicycling. Armstrong also competes in "mountain biking" events, but when you talk about the most famous bicycle races, you are talking about "cycling."
wikipedia, "the bicycle is the most efficient self-powered means of transportation, in terms of energy a person must expend to travel a given distance. From a mechanical viewpoint, up to 99% of the energy delivered by the rider into the pedals is transmitted to the wheels." The bicycle "double diamond" design has not changed much in over a hundred years, oh, and check the pic
even Leonardo Da Vinci designed a bicycle.
So LeMond spent a lot of his goodwill (apparently successfully) suing people. LeMond also gives speeches that heap innuendo on Lance Armstong's achievemants in the sport implying that Armstrong's results may not be purely athletic. Trek which sponsor's Armstrong, and which distributed LeMond bicycles dropped the LeMond line in retaliation for the LeMond criticism. LeMond sued. And as I said a week or two back, LeMond and Trek settled the lawsuit according to VeloNews. LeMond's bicycle line will no longer be distributed by Trek (it really was not selling well anymore) but Trek will donate a couple hundred thousand dollars to a charity of LeMond's choosing.
By the way, no knock on LeMond's bicycle design, at all--bicycles to a large degree are fashion driven, and not dissimilar to basball mitts of my generation bearing the name of the star of the moment.
