Amgen Tour of California, Stage 8: Hincapie So Close

24. mai 2010

Agoura Hills, California

U.S. national road champion George Hincapie delivered the BMC Racing Team a runner-up finish on the final stage of the Amgen Tour of California Sunday while teammate Steve Morabito placed 12th overall.

Breakaway Of Seven
Hincapie was among seven riders who escaped the field on the second of four trips up the difficult Rock Store climb during the 134 km race. "This stage was brutal," Hincapie said. "I knew the race was going to be hard. I did everything right. I just didn’t have the legs today.” Hincapie was beaten in the sprint by Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin-Transitions) as Michael Rogers (HTC-Columbia) won overall. Morabito and Hincapie were two of only 63 finishers (of 128 starters), the lowest in the race's five-year history.
