Homage to George Hincapie
Hincapie wins at Saint-Lary-Soulan
I just had to show my respect to this man. He is a terrific all-round rider and has been Lance's consistent workhorse on the USPS/Discovery teams for many years. He's been riding in the Tour for 10 years and finally gets his dues.
“I’m in a state of shock right now.” George Hincapie admitted that he had just won the biggest race of his life and it was natural that he didn’t quite know how to handle the attention that was lavished upon him at the finish of the hardest mountain stage of the 2005 Tour de France. It was an inspiring display with so many consequences that George found it difficult to come to terms with the reaction.
Way to go George! Your a superstar in my books!
