Luc Leblanc, a story of survival

A lifetime dedicated to cycling, throughout 13 seasons as a professional cyclist. Although one of his first steps involved a traumatic experience, with the death of his brother due to being hit by a car when he was 12 years old. Luc LeBlanc (Limoges, 56 years old) was one of the benchmark runners of his generation, above all, as a combative stage chaser. A fighting spirit that led him to win two stages in the Tour de France and, his greatest success, the rainbow jersey in the World Championships from 1994.

His sporting career, as well as his best and worst personal moments as an athlete, are reflected in the book by Érik Orsenna entitled Moi, Lucho: L’important, c’est de rester vivant (“I, Lucho: the important thing is to stay alive”). In his pages, his combative character is perfectly captured, the one that also led him to wear the national tricolor and the yellow jersey of the Tour. All this, despite the consequences, also physical, that that deadly accident of his brother in the form of an injury to his left leg. A Luc Leblanc whose story is worth knowing.
