I got 2 meet Greg @ revoultion cycles when it first opened. Nice guy. He was there because when the juniors went through rock creek he made friends with a secrect security cop and was in town 2 visit him and the cops shop of choice was where ever Pinkey was @. Both nice guys(da cop and Lemond)and those pics are still some where in that shop I believe. DC history.

Gwadzilla,
Thanks for spreading the word about the 1899 champ. I got to see sculptor Toby Mendez's statue in clay, before it went to the foundry to be cast in bronze, and it's magnificent. We're thrilled that world-class athletes Greg LeMond and Edwin Moses (our honorary national chairman) are giving props to "the Worcester Whirlwind."
