Hincapie goes “Waah, Waah, all the way home.”

Mon ami Paul playing the part of "Big George" Hincapie.

George Hincapie, America’s handsome sweetheart and long-time Tour de France veteran, missed getting the yellow leader’s jersey by five seconds in the mostly flat Stage 14. Afterward, he pouted like a French supermodel that no one in his 12-man break helped him accomplish his days’ goal. None of the other riders were interested, and rightly so. As much as we love you “Big George,” why should your competitors help you better your overall standings? All those guys hoped for was a stage win.  And it was a well-deserved win for the Russian Serguei Ivanov who took off from the break with eight miles to go and soloed in for the stage victory. It was the first stage win for the struggling Russian Team Katusha, which may have just nailed another year on its sponsorship contract.
