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.
It’s a combo LeMond himself would appreciate. His style was a blend of gritty determination and progressive experimentation. Celebrate one of the all-time greats with this Pro Fit jersey, along with a matching cap and socks.
