Schumi "steals win" from Big George

Not exactly the anticipated end to the ENECO tour.

Personally, I'll say that this kind of drama is one of the reasons I love pro cycling and anyone asking once again (after Thor's incident in the tour) for the fans to be seperated from the race risks ruining our sport.

Well, that and I'm just sick of watching George crash.

Schumacher almost crashed as well. This is a crowd control problem. Hincapie lost out, but either of them could have been knocked down by that crowd.
You don't see that kind of crowd energy in golf or tennis, that's for sure.

The general consensus in our club here is the finish should have been nullified.
