Greg LeMond, the first American to win the Tour de France, was injured in a car accident earlier this week near his home in a Minneapolis suburb.

LeMond was on his way to the dentist when the crash occurred. LeMond’s wife, Kathy, said the 51-year-old had no recollection of what happened.

“We don’t really know what happened, but there were about 400 accidents here this weekend,” Kathy LeMond said. “The roads have been terrible due to the icy conditions.”

Kathy LeMond told the website Velonation that her husband will probably have to wear a corset for three months and “other than the pain in his back, he is in good shape.”

LeMond first won the Tour de France in 1986 and repeated the fete in 1989 and 1990.
