Roadside Attractions debuted the official trailer for The Last Rider, the sports documentary film on the cyclist Greg Lemond who came back from the brink of death with a bullet hole in his stomach to win the 1989 Tour de France.

He was accidentally shot and seriously injured while hunting in 1987 and missed the next two Tours. At the 1989 Tour, he completed a comeback to win, and successfully defended his Tour title the following year. LeMond retired from competition in December 1994.

LeMond is considered to be the greatest American cyclist of all time, winning the Tour de France a total of three times and the Road Race World Championship twice, becoming the only American male to win the Tour de France.

Starring in the film are Greg LeMond, his wife Kathy LeMond, Pedro Delgado, Laurent Fignon.

Directed by Alex Holmes, The Last Rider premiered at the 2022 Telluride Film Festival, and will open in theaters with a release date of June 23rd, 2023.

The film is described as the heroic true story of American cyclist Greg LeMond, considered to be one of the greatest cyclists of all time, who defied the odds for one of the most triumphant comeback stories in sporting history. The first, and only, American to win the Tour de France, LeMond came back from the brink of death to beat his famed rivals in the historic and nail-biting race at the 1989 Tour de France.

Directed by Alex Holmes and featuring exclusive interviews with LeMond and his wife Kathy as well as, never before seen footage, The Last Rider is an exhilarating portrait of one of the greatest athletes of our time.

Director Holmes commented, “The Last Rider is a celebration not just of athletic talent but of the power of love to enable us to realize our potential, and sometimes even to achieve that which the world thinks is impossible.”
