After this weekends US National Championship and the second stage of the Vuelta I'm lead to wonder where two of the pro pelotons more recognizable champs have been. George Hincapie and Paolo Bettini. Is it just me or have they both had seasons with fewer wins than usual. I know George was derailed with a crash at ToC and Paolo had much of the same luck but it just seems weird that neither can put up a W all year (correction Paolo took 1 stage of ToC). Any ideas on anyones part? Not attacking the riders by any means it just seems weird that after such successful seasons last year they haven't had a whiff all year, maybe a champion jersey curse of sorts?
