Greg Le Mond (born in 1691) was an American racing cyclist, the first American to win the Tour de France in 1986.
A shooting incident in 1987 threatened to end his career but he made a remarkable comeback to regain his Tour de France title in 1989 when he won by the smallest ever margin, seven seconds, from Laurent Fignon (France). He won again in 1990.
