Guess who won the Tour of California stage today?
Crazy Legs! I found this article in the local Belgian newspaper earlier in the week. These are really the legs of George Hincapie (Team High Road)! For those of you who may not know who he is, he spent the last many years racing as both a one-day race specialist and Lance Armstrong's right hand man. Apparently, he has a circulation problem that leaves him with a funky left leg. They call it Spataders in Dutch. The literal translation is "splattered open veins" which i think means varicose veins.
Based on today's result, it clearly doesn't hold him back from performing at the highest level! Go George Go!
