#10 Greg LeMond vs. Bernard Hinault
In 1985, Bernard Hinault (right) was riding to his fifth victory in the Tour de France. He was aided by his 24-year-old teammate, Greg LeMond, who finished third behind Hinault the year before. Hinault built a formidable lead going into stage 14. Then he crashed. When the tour hit the Pyrenees, LeMond wanted to surge ahead. With two black eyes and a broken nose, the team leader was lagging, and the race was wide open. But LeMond’s coaches held him back (he says they lied to him). Hinault won that year. LeMond won the next, and the grudge never died. Read the rest at Men’s Vogue.
What about Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis? Is chess even a sport?
