Subject: [CR]Contributions of Mr. Lemond

For those that did not listen to the Lemond Interview on competitorradio.com, I would like to simply state that Lemond has made quite a few contributions to the sport. Everyone here would instantly recognize the value of a first American win in the Tour De France or his pioneering businesses such as the cycle company or the new venture in indoor trainers (which are also superb for those who like this sort of thing), However, how many people know of his promotion and deep understanding of the varus wedge which corrects for a condition that 92% of all cyclists have? Once one understands the situation one can put a wedge under the off topic modern cleat or a wedge which accomplishes the same thing under the insole of an on topic cycling shoe. Either way one will achieve a more symetrical stroke with greater power delivery and faster cadence. For many like myself the transformation is not subtle.
