It kind of seems the “I train harder post” turned into a “how great was” Greg LeMond post a lot of places. So, here’s a video of the end of the 1989 World Pro Road Championships to get your juices flowing for tomorrow’s race in Liege.
I talked to Greg about this race. It was up in Cable, Wisconsin, the night before Chequamegon, and we were discussing the difference between racing MTB and on the road. My premise was that you could ride into a road race when you were having a bad day and that if you were having even a bad 30 minutes in a MTB race, especially on a World Cup or World Championship level, you were buried. He said that he wasn’t having a good day in ’89. He said the rain rejuvenated his legs and he felt great after 4 hours. It is amazing how he chases everything the last 10 minutes of the race. And leads the sprint out. Enjoy.
