Greg LeMond, 51 today.

In 1986, LeMond became the first American and the first non-European cyclist to win the Tour de France.

A controversial figure for many, especially when it comes to Le Dopage!

However you may feel about him, he is a very important part of the history of this sport and is responsible for some of the most iconic stories and images connected to the Tour de France.
