One of the absolute all time Legends and all round good guy George Hincapie has announced today, that he will retire, at the end of this year not only from BMC but also professional racing. The World of professional road bike racing will not be the same again.
Gentleman George....one of my favourite riders.
Chapeau George. Who will be the next great domestique from the US?
I never saw that film on him. I must track it down.
saw that on twitter last night! devo! he is such a legend of the sport and all round good guy. true crowd favorite. maybe some further inspiration for BMC???
that is sad news he was one of my favourite riders year after year always there always working hard.
I think of Hincapie as the American (therefore inferior but richer) version of Stuey.
