In celebration of Cyclepedia: Iconic Bicycle Design, three-time winner of the Tour de France Greg LeMond visited the Portland Art Museum to share his experiences as world champion racer and bike designer. In conversation with interviewer Michelle Poyourow, LeMond, a former professional cyclist, entrepreneur, and anti-doping advocate, shared his experiences as a world champion racer and bike designer, as well as what’s on his mind today with his growing interest in e-bikes and staying in the saddle as we age. Over 650 people were in attendance for the event. Before things got started, Nutcase owners Michael Morrow and his wife Miriam Berman were able to chat with LeMond for awhile.
