After finishing second at the 1927 Premier Pas Dunlap race and then competing at the 1928 Olympics, Henri Lemoine turned professional and had a very long career, competing through 1958, when he was almost 50-years-old. He rode many varied races, competing in six-days and on the road, but was likely best known as a track racer in the motor-paced event. He was a six-time French professional champion in motor-paced, winning in 1938, 1942, 1945, and 1951-53, and standing on the podium 14 times in the event. He competed in six-day races from 1930-37, both in the United States and Paris, and his last known competitive appearance came at the 1958 Buenos Aires Six-Day. On the roads, Lemoine placed second at the Critérium des As in 1930 and 1931, placed 11th at the 1932 Critérium Internationale, and 20th at the 1933 Grand Prix des Nations.
