The union between LeMond and carbon fiber was solidified in 1986.
This marked the first victory for both Greg and a carbon fiber bicycle in the history of the sport. Victory would become prolific to the LeMond name as Greg continued to win on his eponymous bikes. The ubiquity of LeMond Bikes materialized in the victories at the Tour de France, World Championships, and the inimitable Paris-Roubaix races.
In 1995, the nascence of LeMond Bikes as a brand was made manifest in a partnership with Trek Corp. Together, they released what would become one of the nation’s top road brands until parting ways in 2008.
