LeMond joins Eurosport

Published April 8, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS (BRAIN) — Greg LeMond will be joining Eurosport as an on-air channel ambassador, providing analysis on the network's coverage of Paris-Roubaix, the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France in a preview and review show called "LeMond on Tour."

Eurosport is broadcast in 54 European markets.

LeMond also will have a new monthly show called "LeMond of Cycling." The first episode broadcasts Wednesday and will review the Grand Tour races of 2014.

LeMond said, "It feels like the right time to get back into the heart of cycling again and for me there was only one place I could really do that and it was with Eurosport. I have always spoken my mind and feel now the sport is in a better place so the timing is perfect.

"I love the connection I have with the fans in Europe and can't wait to join them for the season's biggest races with the Eurosport team. I can't believe it was 25 years ago I won Le Tour by such a tiny margin. 1989 was a great year for cycling and it's very special for me to know that it was the same year Eurosport first broadcast the race."
