I remember those articles from the mid to late 1970s, making it clear LeMond was already so good as a teenager that it seemed a forgone conclusion that he'd be a world champion if he could get adequate team support.

Thanks for those clips! Good to reminisce. At the time I was in my late teens/early 20s, in the Navy and bicycle commuting to base. I felt like Dave Stohler, with fantasies of being a domestique on the grand tour circuit, treating every 10 mile commute like a time trial... riding my 30 lb hi-ten frame Motobecane Mirage! Good times.
