Les Héros du cyclisme
The win by 8 seconds Greg LeMond
He wasn’t supposed to win. Not this time. Trailing French rival Laurent Fignon by 50 seconds, with just one short 24.5km time trial left in the 1989 Tour de France, American Greg LeMond would have to settle for second. Following a near-fatal hunting accident that had erased his previous season, a podium finish would have to do.
But that wasn’t enough for LeMond. Riding a Mavic Comete wheel and full Mavic groupset with futuristic aero bars and a teardrop-shaped helmet, he blitzed the TT into Paris. Fignon’s formidable lead was shockingly erased and LeMond won by 8 seconds—still the closest Tour finish on record. The handle bar was revolutionary from Mavic and just after the Tour finished the order book for this item was completely full.
Our Les Héros du Cyclisme collection celebrates the cycling gods who once ruled legendary French races. LeMond is certainly on that list. In addition to that unforgettable win in Paris, he also won two other Tours de France and the 1989 world championship title. We honor LeMond with this special kit that is both a throwback and a marvel of modern fabric technologies.
