Seriously? Doesn’t LeMond’s signature make the jersey worth less than a plain one? Great cause, but he’s nobody’s favorite cyclist.

Unfortunately Lemond’s antics in the courtroom and media have overshadowed his “legend” status as a cyclist. Too bad for the charity.

The charity or what the money will do isn’t mentioned here either.

Funny… all the auction says is “… money raised will go to a worthwhile cause.”

4 bidders and the current price has sky-rocketed to 200 quid.

I’m hoping the guy who bought Floyd’s old mountain bike for $5 will win the auction for this jersey.

I thought all that bitterness might have helped him keep the pounds off.

Tony–speak for yourself. Greg LeMond will always be my favorite cyclist.
