RARE MUSCULAR DISEASE FORCES CYCLIST LEMOND TO RETIRE
Published December 5, 1994
GREG LEMOND announced his retirement from cycling because of mitochondrial myopathy. Lemond was interviewed today on "CBS This Morning." On his impact on the sport: "I know that when I first started cycling, I had a hard time getting an intellegent question from any journalist in the United States. I actually now go to press conferences where non-cycling journalists actually ask good questions." On his decision to retire: "I've seen my performance drop dramatically over the last three years, and every time I kept being hard on myself, thinking that I wasn't dedicated or needed to train more. I did everything I could the last year and just kept getting worse" (CBS, 12/5).
