About LeMond Fitness
In 1986, Greg LeMond became the first American to win the Tour de France and he is among the few riders in the history of cycling to repeat that feat three times. LeMond founded the company in 2002 after growing tired of indoor cycling equipment and trainers that do not have the fit or feel of riding a bike outdoors. Designed like great road bikes, all LeMond Fitness exercise and training bikes offer user-friendly adjustments and innovative training programs that allow users to develop and attain their personal performance goals. LeMond Fitness is the official bike trainer sponsor of Team Garmin-Cervelo, the Rapha-Focus professional cyclocross team, Kenda Pro Cycling, world champion triathlete Michellie Jones, and more.
