The Comeback: Greg LeMond, the True King of American Cycling, and a Legendary Tour de France chronicles the life of Greg LeMond, one of America’s greatest athletes, from his roots in Nevada and California to the heights of global fame, to a falling out with his own family and a calamitous confrontation with Lance Armstrong over allegations that Armstrong was doping. Author Daniel de Visé tells how LeMond waged a campaign on principle for more than a decade, ostracized from the sport he loves, before Armstrong was finally stripped of his own Tour titles for his role in the biggest doping conspiracy in the history of American sports. With a fierce attention to detail, de Visé reveals the dramatic, ultra-competitive inner world of a sport rarely seen up close, and builds a compelling case for LeMond as its great American hero.
