    George Hincapie Story

    I came across this story on George Hincapie's site. A 12 y/o boy writes about his "Picture Day" experience with George Hincapie.

    This is probably the best story I've read this year.

    A Thank You Letter to George Hincapie

    Awesome story, Stanford has a promising future as a writer/racer. Or maybe Phil Ligget's replacement.

    My favorite part of the article:

    "At the finish line, George said “Good ride” and he handed me his Oakley’s. These are “The Oakley’s” - The white glasses he wore in the Tour. That was so nice. When I put these on I will be an automatic 79 pound “chick magnet." It was the perfect day. The ride was so great."
