American Tour de France winners in the news

While most of the media attention focused on Lance Armstrong's clearing on a blood-doping charge, America's other Tour de France winner made the news this week as well. Greg LeMond, his in-laws and other business partners are suing the Montana-based Yellowstone Club and its owner, Tim Blixseth. Blixseth said he finds the suit a relief:

Blixseth said he was "pleased and relieved that they have filed the lawsuit. After many, many months of being threatened unless I deposit large amounts of cash in their accounts, I'm relieved that it will be resolved in a court of law by reasonable minds."
