Wednesday morning, a spring snow storm hit Colorado Springs. I managed to get to the airport, but soon learned that my departure for France would be delayed until Thursday. When I arrived back at the office, the entire staff was silently huddled around one computer. I peered over their shoulders to see live images of the final kilometer of Ghent-Wevelgem. Thank you, Mother Nature, for closing the airport
George Hincapie is the strongest I have ever seen him. His power outputs are the highest they have ever been and his ability to maintain intense efforts is great. His strong performances throughout the spring have given him a great deal of confidence, a fact that was very evident in Ghent-Whevelgem
Editor’s Note: The remainder of this article, which details Hinacpie’s recovery and training since his win on Wednesday, is posted on Chris Carmichael’s coaching web site, TrainRight.com.
Charmichael will send another story after Sunday’s finish of Paris-Roubaix, to outline Hincapie’s pre-race tactics and how the race panned out for the Postal rider.
