                         Under’s Legends’ Night Dinner

Greg LeMond is scheduled to be honored at next month’s Tour Down Under’s Legends’ Night Dinner on January 24. 

The three-time winner of the Tour de France and two-time world champion, will join the ranks of other distinguished cyclists such as Sir Chris Hoy, Bernard Hinault, Anna Meares and Eddy Merckx, who have also been recognized in the past. 

"We love Australia and are looking forward to the visit. You have built a great event and we can’t wait to see it for ourselves," said LeMond who retired in 1994.

Race director Mike Turtur said that the announcement of LeMond’s visit to South Australia will only add to the enthusiasm of this year’s Tour Down Under, which is now in its 17th year. 

"Greg is a true legend of our sport and really changed cycling in so many ways," Turtur said.
