Before the rise and fall of Lance Armstrong, there was another American cyclist whose comeback story and Tour de France dominance was the pride of the United States. Greg LeMond’s tumultuous journey is the subject of a new book from Daniel de Visé called The Comeback. The book covers LeMond’s near-death experience which put his incredible career in jeopardy, his comeback from that experience to win his second Tour de France and his feud with Lance Armstrong over doping allegations which ostracized LeMond from the cycling world. You can learn more about this engaging story at Auntie’s Bookstore, where de Visé is discussing his book and answering questions.
