A little piece by Matt Seamon

You can find a little piece about Greg LeMond written by Matt Seamon here.

Matt Seamon started working with Greg to write his autobiography, but the project was aborted, and Matt Seamon says a possible reason was that Greg felt his career was eclipsed by Armstrong's. I imagine there's more to it than that... maybe Greg wasn't ready yet to tell his full story. I just hope that one day we will be able to read his own point of view on his life and career.

As Matt Seamon says:
"I hope he does complete the book some day. He was the original pioneer."

Greg to speak at Santa Clara University

Greg LeMond will speak on Sunday, February 17th, at 6pm at Santa Clara University, about "Ethics, Doping, and the Future of Cycling". The event is free and open to public. More informations here.

I'm quite a bit frustrated... I'll be in Northern California just a bit before, leaving on the 15th :(, missing the event by not much.

Happy New Year to all Greg LeMond fans!

and to everybody else too ;-)... (I know, I know... a bit late, but better late than ever)

And to start the year, two little news about Greg:

There's a short extract of the Procycling issue dedicated to him here:
Procycling talks to Greg LeMond.

And the panel about "Legal Issues in Drug Testing Athletes", held by the Chicago Bar Association last November and to which Greg participated, was aired on CSPAN, and they now have a PodCast of it.

Go to this CSPAN site and subscribe to the
Outside the Beltway podcast, or use directly the following xml:,

and get the January, 2nd 2008 episode... Greg is introduced at about 1'16''05, then makes a little presentation about his career, talks about his retirement with 'a bad taste in his mouth', talks about doping... And in the end, with the rest of the panel, answers a few Q&A.

If you want it and have trouble getting it, contact me:, changing AB by the 2 last digits of Greg's birth year ... (sorry 'bout that, just my loose attempt at trying to avoid spams).
