LeMond's record time trial

A lot of people are talking about the possibility that today's time trial might break the record for fastest Tour time trial.

Greg LeMond set the record, 54.54 km/h, back in 1989.

What most people aren't mentioning is that LeMond set the record in a 24.5-km time trial, where Armstrong and Ullrich are racing twice that distance today.

If one of them sets that record today, they've earned it.
