George Hincapie....

Wins Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, after marking Kevin Van Impe and slipping into a 2 man break with 6km to go. Way to go George!

This is another example of proof that George is damn good. Ahh....remember back to last year's TDF during that stage over the cobbles? He and Eki were flying like the wind. Keep it up George!

Thanks Smoothie! I was sitting around feeling bad about Bode Miller crashing out of another slalom. Raich has all but caught him and deserves the world cup title, but there are other americans competing in europe! Go George!

Yes! way to go George. The first free race on the intenet and George won it. I could not ask for any better. Cycling.tv rules!

I've been away all weekend. Glad to see that Hincapie got another win, and that Nuyens took Het Volk.

Posted on another thread (Lance 7) but it belongs here as well...

I'd like to see him (LA) go out hard and scare the crap out of everyone else...then, when nobody else is looking- WHAM! Discovery sends another member out front on a crazy attack only to stay away because everyone is worried about LA. That rider (whoever it is- Hincapie maybe) goes on to defend the Maillot Juane and win the tour.

Lance as a domestique at the top of his career would be something nobody could argue against. Imagine that. That would be one of those truly sportsmanlike things professional cycling sees from time to time. The record stays in tact and everyone can't stop promoting the gentlemanly nature of cycling.

Just my pipe dream.

Go Hincapie!!!!!

re: cycling.tv, you have to pay for Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne now that it's been shown?

georgie wins another euro race! good on him! that's like, what? three in his career? let's see if he can put it together for a big one.

btw, with devolder, van heeswijck and hammond, he now actually has support for the classics. this is one guys who's benefitting from the pro tour.

Yep, he's a regular classics specialist I dare say.
