Greg LeMond Limited Edition Series

Greg Lemond, triple Tour de France winner (the only American to win the Tour), and twice UCI World Champion, teamed up with the French frame manufacturer Time to relaunch his signature brand.

The first three models are limited editions and different only in cosmetics, named after Greg LeMond’s three Tour de France victories: TDF 1986, TDF 1989, and TDF 1990.

After his retirement, LeMond established a bicycle manufacturing company named Lemond Bikes, but things didn’t go well, and LeMond signed a partnership with Trek. But the partnership ended soon after LeMond started questioning whether Trek-sponsored Lance Armstrong was racing clean.

LeMond has a long history with the French company. After he won the 1986 Tour de France, in April of 1987, after being shot in a hunting accident, LeMond has learned that Bernard Tapie (owner of the French bicycle manufacturer LOOK at that time, as well as the La Vie Claire team) had let him go. Tapie had also fired Jean Marc and Roland Cattin, two engineers from LOOK. Marc and Cattin had emerged with a new company called TIME.

TIME history began with a clipless bicycle pedal system, and LeMond stayed with TIME pedals for rest of his racing career.

Before re-launching his brand, LeMond considered several options to go with, and ultimately decided that the TIME was the right choice. Lemond says that: “I’ve travelled the world, observing carbon fabrication in more detail than ever before, and I’ve refined my ideas. When I landed in Vaulx-Milieu, France to meet with Jean Marc Gueugneaud and Roland Cattin of Time Sport International earlier this year, I had done my due diligence. I spent countless hours traveling, sitting in meetings and standing on factory floors, but I saved Time for last for a reason: I would now be able to view everything they were doing through a discerning eye.”
