Lemond on ESPN's SportsCenter Sunday 9:30 a.m.

ESPN.com | LeMond levels more criticism at Lance

ESPN has already aired excerpts of their interview with Greg LeMond. Tomorrow morning, you can watch the entirety of the interview on their 9:30 a.m. edition of SportsCenter.

Of course, that will be up against Sunday morning's live coverage of Stage 14 on the Outdoor Life Network.

Review the media archives, Lemond is a chronic 'whinner/complainer" with his quoteable 'if only' laments. Now, for the past five years, he hurls jealous, vindictive, & unsubstantiated cheap shots at Lance Armstrong -initiately in a foreign press no less. Irrespective of his business interests in the cycling world, Lemond does American cycling, in particular, a heinous disservice with his cheap-shot/purely subjective, brand of bullshit.
ULTIAMTELY, there is only one accurate way to describe Greg Lemond & his 'cycling legacy' - CHUMP!

Lemond is just jealous. Jealous people spew vitriol.

Accomplish something great and lesser beings will try and tear it down. Greg is a sad little man.

I would like to see how all this publicity Greg is getting (by bashing Lance) affects LeMond bike sales. Probably positively... It’s all about timing. The “LA Confidential” book would of flopped if not released at such an opportune time. My guess: Greg is playing the same game as David Walsh and Pierre Ballester—he thinks he can piggy back off Lance fever (never has there been so much excitement about Le Tour and bicylcing) and gain publicity for his company. But Greg knows he has to act now because opportunities like this come around once in a lifetime. He didn't make a lot of money while riding, so he's thinking, now is my chance. During the interview he mentioned his bike company; I bet you a lot of people didn’t even know he had a bike company! Well, they do now.

Well this is like the baseball steroid issue. Most people seem to think that Barry and Co. are juiced up, but no one really knows for sure and people shouldn't make comments about Bonds until they know the facts. My guess is that most Tour riders are on some sort of performance enhancement, but who really knows unless we witness it for ourselves?

Grey has never fallen so low to try and raise himself above the doldrums. He is really showing how 'small' he really is. He use to be an idol but now I find he is not an idol but and idiot for saying things that bashes one personality without proof. It's so easy to say things that might not be true but people will still read these words as facts because of who he is. Poor Grey, so evil, so small and so unprofessional
