1983 🇺🇸 Greg Lemond - Road World Champion winner in 1983

The winner of this event earns the right to wear this distinctive "rainbow" jersey as the reigning champion.

Perhaps his most memorable One-Day victory occurred in 1983, when he won the World Championship Road Race in Altenrhein, Switzerland ahead of Adri Van der Poel of Netherlands and Stephen Roche of Ireland.

LeMond seemed destined to become the first American to win cycling’s supreme title ever since he won the world junior title in 1979. And, of course, winning the pro world’s by the time he was 22 was on that list of “yellow legal pad” ambitions LeMond set down as a high-schooler. But there’s a chasm between wanting to achieve a goal that lofty and actually doing it.
