Young LeMond at 1977 USCF National Championships

This is one of my favorite video finds so far. This is raw unedited Super 8 footage from the ‘77 Nationals in Seattle, WA. It’s a looong video. The first five minutes is some road racing (sans audio) and then the track events start. The footage is choppy, grainy and often shaky but the Super 8 film has such a cool look to it.

The best part is, if you listen to the announcer, they’ve got some young talents in the junior races such as Mark Gorski and the one-and-only Greg LeMond — who was probably 16 years old at the time. LeMond kills it too!

Big props to CinelliDog for posting this up.
