Alright, I’m not too hip to all that is cycling smear, but this is quite catchy. Greg LeMond admitted to being sexually molested as a child, when he was testifying in Floyd Landis’ doping hearing.
He came, he said, to tell the truth testifying that he had shared the secret of the abuse with Landis, accused of doping in last year’s Tour de France, in a phone call last August. He did so, he said, in the hope that if Landis, too, had a secret to share that Landis would come clean.
Under oath, LeMond also disclosed that he’d received a call Wednesday night, the evening before he was to testify, from someone purporting to be his uncle who said, I’ll be there tomorrow and we can talk about how we used to hide your weenie.
Well, turns out the phone number appearing on LeMond’s cell phone belonged to Floyd Landis’ now former business manager. So yes, this is considered as Floyd Landis’ party trying to bully the witness, LeMond. And another detail — LeMond wore all black on Thursday, a stark contrast to the yellow tie he sported the other three days of the hearing. Why you ask?
The black, he told another reporter who repeated the quote to me, represents the end of any credibility Greg LeMond has left.
Well, Greg LeMond may say he has no credibility left. I beg to differ. If you ask me what the first thing I think of when I hear the name Greg LeMond, I think
sexually molested kid famous cyclist. End of story.
