hincapie sums up cycling.

he's an omertist and unrepentant doper who made millions off the backs of clean riders, yet he's one of the most respected people in the peloton...
Completely correct. The fact this guy gets any respect whatsoever is a testament to the endless mountain we climb. He's as big of a fraud as they come.

Is HE actually running it? If so I wonder if he realises how hard they are to run? Unless he has ridiculous amounts of money to throw away he'll go broke in no time if he's doing it because it looks like a bit of easy-going fun. It's tough to turn a big profit let alone break even, and that's if you know what you're doing.
It's a business, you don't just sit on your **** out in the sun and expect the customers to come beating down your door..
 
Reviving this guy since seeing an ad being run by a new retailer on TV in the US during the TDF yesterday featuring none other than.....Big George Hincapie?!?!

WTF...how does this guy get a complete pass, and now companies are actually paying him to be their spokesperson for cycling and buying their gear at this new retailer outfit?!?!

Amazing, so sick of the double standard for Lance and pretty much every other American cyclist who doped and came "clean" (see what I did there?), just because they went after Lance.

Sorry, more of a venting post.

About to fire off an email to the retailer and let them have it. Why would I want to go buy stuff from these guys when they have a lifetime doper as a spokesperson? Yeah, progress in this sport, or just bad judgement on their behalf....

I dont remember Hincapie calling Betsy a mad ***** or Emma an alcoholic and a prositute.

Did Hincapie sue those who questioned his abilities and performances?

He appears to be doing well after admitting to cheating and that is not good to hear. But no one is forced to buy his goods.

Monkeymouth on t'other hand well that is a whole other cess pit and you know that, but you aint happy that your boy is in deep in the pit and trying desperately to get out. When making that cesspit don't ya think Monkeymouth should had put in an escape route, kind stoopid of him ;)

What a prince. He dopes to get a career, fame, and a thriving company. Without it, he'd be burger flipper.
He outs Lance only when he's told to do so under oath, risking perjury charges of mass fraud against a US govt agency.
He would not have done half the Tours without doping. And he'd been pack fill at best.
What a hero. He's just like Indurain, just WAY slower. And sucking up to the evil overlord Lance at every opportunity, until he was an overlord no more.

Let's open a donation account to immotilize the guy as role model of moral, in a huge bronze statue. I feel so blessed to have been a comtempory, having been witness to his human goodness and awesome.
 
...............correct

whatever............BIG George stood up and was counted

ok? such actions may have been self preservation to limit damage to his business enterprises

but never lose sight of how much better the cycling world seems with lance's
7 wins...........................'gone!'

Don't worry you're not the only one not to forget GH and the rest. As small as it may seem I've convinced a cycling club to stop using his clothing, one step at a time man.

The rest will get their due as well, one step at a time.

Don't worry. This may again reverse itself after the 18th. :eek:
 
I was teading Hincapies affadavit and saw a tweet from someone who has seen the Lance film about Hincapie lacking remorse, he testimony seemed very much matter of fact, but did he stop in 2006 when he said, it just does not make sense
 
It's pretty obvious not all the affidavits are necessarily truthful in all regards. They tell the truth about what USADA already knew, and twist the facts in their favour or outright lie in matters that USADA knew less about. It's a classic Raskolnikov.

I didn't find Hincapie's affidavit to be the most questionable of the lot. That'd be Leipheimer's, followed by Danielson's.

The thing about Levi's is he never says he stopped doping in it, which means that there may be omissions but not lies, so in that sense it is less questionable.
