Gregory James ("Greg") LeMond (born June 26, 1961) is an ex-professional road bicycle racer, entrepreneur, and anti-doping advocate from the United States. He was World Champion in 1983 and 1989, and is a three-time winner of the Tour de France (the only American to do so). LeMond was born in Lakewood, California, and raised in Reno, Nevada. He is married and has three children with his wife Kathy, with whom he supports a variety of charitable causes and organizations.

In 1986, LeMond became the first non-European professional cyclist to win the Tour de France. A shooting accident resulted in a two year layoff. LeMond returned to the Tour in 1989, completing an improbable comeback by winning in dramatic fashion on the race's final stage. LeMond successfully defended his title the following year, claiming his third and final Tour victory in 1990, and making him one of only seven riders who have won three or more Tours.
