Outlier


Yellow jersey, no helmet.

Yellow jersey, no helmet.

No matter your opinion of Lance Armstrong and his admission – if you think he’s a victim or misunderstood – here is an article that came out in 2012 about Greg LeMond you should read for some perspective.

LeMond was the original great American cyclist, three time Tour De France winner, but was branded jealous and wreckless because he dared to point out that people were cheating in the sport he loved. Because he shared his opinion that cheating is wrong, his character was attacked, his reputation was marginalized and his business was ruined….all for standing his ground on cheating.

It should be noted he came back from a near fatal accident to win the Tour De France consecutive times -unlike some – without the aid of doping.

In my opinion, that is the stuff of a champion.
