      Wow, Greg was so clever, and a great cyclist. Beautiful cadence, excellent power. Still too underated. Mike.

      Benjamin, I just wanted to thank you again for making this photo available with a license that allows us to use it in the Greg LeMond wikipedia article. That was such a selfless gesture that will be appreciated by countless fans, I'm sure. You're a superstar in my book and I hope that, in "paying it forward" like this, you benefit as well!

      One question though: is the photo taken after LeMond has left the start house, or before, when he's still circulating in the warm-up area w/ Fignon and anyone else left who'd not yet started their TT?

      Thank you Joe ! My pleasure, really.

      As for your question : it is indeed during the warm-up, on the other side of the starting box. The only picture I have from the starting box is this one from Laurent Fignon. There are also pics from Marc Madiot and Gérard Rué, while they are racing.
