The unbelievable story of cyclist Greg LeMond who came back from the brink of death after a hunting accident to win the closest race in the history of the Tour de France.

In Detail

In 1986, LeMond became the first American to win the Tour de France.

The following year, he was hit by a bullet in a hunting accident. The injuries were life-threatening, but despite 35 shotgun pellets in his body, he fought his way back to the saddle to compete again. Now it’s 1989 and his main rival is Laurent Fignon.

In Alex Holmes’ gripping documentary, Greg LeMond tells his own story with the help of his loyal wife Kathy.

A two-wheeled thriller about a strong-willed American who confronted betrayal, sexual abuse and death itself to complete one of the most inspiring comebacks in sports history.
