Three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond won a restraining order against two cybersquatters who own 66 web addresses that use his name and the name of his carbon-fiber technology business, Grail.

According to the StarTribune, LeMond is suing marketer Frederick H. Stinchfield and his son, Frederick H. Stinchfield III, for $6.6. million.
