The Comeback chronicles the life of one of America’s greatest athletes, from his roots in the windswept hills of Nevada's Washoe Valley to the heights of his global fame at the Tour de France. With a swift narrative drive and fierce attention to detail, The Comeback reveals the dramatic, ultra-competitive inner world of a sport rarely glimpsed up close, and builds a compelling case for Greg LeMond as its great American hero.

We have invited Daniel De Vise to present and make available for purchase, his book about Greg LeMond's comeback 




Daniel de Visé is an author and journalist.  A graduate of Wesleyan and Northwestern

universities, he has worked at the The Washington Post, the Miami Herald and three

other newspapers in a 23-year career.  He shared a 2001 Pulitzer Prize and garnered

more than two dozen other national and regional journalism awards.  His investigative

reporting twice led to the release of wrongly convicted men from life terms in prison.  

His first book, I Forgot To Remember, published in 2014 from Simon & Schuster; it began

as a front-page article de Visé wrote for the Washington Post about his co-author, Su Meck.

His second book, Andy & Don, also from Simon & Schuster, began as a journalistic

exploration into the storied career of his late brother-in-law, Don Knotts. The Comeback,

his third book, drew inspiration from a childhood immersed in Chicago’s bicycle-racing

subculture.  In 2019, The Comeback inspired U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson of California to

nominate Greg LeMond for the Congressional Gold Medal, the nation’s highest civilian

honor; that legislation is pending. Daniel is married to Sophie Yarborough, a senior editor

at The Washington Post. They and their children live in Maryland.

 




 

Adopt a Highway
