  1. Hi, My name is Martijn from Dutch cyling magazine Soigneur. Each edtition we ask someone with a passion for design and cycling about his favorite items. For the upcoming edition one of the things that came up was the iconic Z jersey of Greg Lemond. I found this picutre of a really cool 1991 Z TT skinsuit on this site http://www.greglemondfan.com/collection.html.
    Would it be possible to help me with a hi res version of this image?
    Hope to hear from you soon.
    Thanks and regards, Martijn

  2. Albert, Nic, and Thierry,

    My name is Tim Loomis I love bicycles and cycling! I worked in the cycling industry for several years, also a fan of Greg and his (ridding clean) career and still ride one of his 1990 Coors light team bikes on occasion! I am also so disappointed of how the sport has deteriorated to who is best of not getting a positive test, but that is a conversation for another day. I am reaching out to you three because I have some posters hat I have kept all theses years of when Greg won the Tour on the final day on the Champs-Elysees when he beat Laurent Fignon in the time trial! You guys deserve one, If you have any interest reach out to me.

    Tim
