Special Greg LeMond issue of Procycling


The January 2008 issue of the magazine Procycling will be a special issue about Greg LeMond, with him as a guest editor: "70 pages of sensational stories direct from his Minnesota home".

"Three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond has taken a step in a new direction by stepping into the editor's chair at Procycling.

In the January 2008 issue, which goes on sale in the UK on December 20 and across the rest of the world in the new year, LeMond focuses on some of the incidents and issues that are close to his heart, including his radical thoughts on training and how cycling has helped his family through some difficult times.

During a frantic few days at home in Minneapolis, LeMond sets out his vision for the sport, analyzing conventional training methods and explaining why he believes less can be more - in short, why training in a very specific way can make any cyclist faster. He also explains what he would do if he was running the sport, and has some particularly strong views on what should be done to tackle the issue of doping.

On the personal side, LeMond gives his insight into some of the great sporting moments he enjoyed on the bike, including his thoughts on that 1986 Tour feud with team-mate Bernard Hinault and why he thinks he got the edge of Laurent Fignon in the incredible 1989 Tour. He also talks frankly and candidly about some of the personal problems he and his family have faced, and reveals how therapy and cycling has helped them get back on the right track."

I'm happy there's someone like you, who informs me about these features. Great magazine and will absolutely buy it. Thanks a lot.

I was just looking on the site of procycling and found out that this issue is only distributed in the UK, Canada and the US. The European issue has another content. Help !

I noticed that the magazine can also be requested from Europe, but I would like to be sure if the Europe issue is different from the UK/USA ones as Thierry stated...

Can you please confirm that?

I'm also willing to buy the magazine :)

Salut!

Albert
