Tour de France 2005 Stage 15

STEVE BAUER - Spidertech p/b C10 director and former Hincapie teammate

"The longevity of his career is pretty phenomenal. Just looking back to the time he turned pro with our team and I became a teammate with George as a young guy and I was more the veteran guy. Just watching him through the years with all his exploits and the Tour de France, it's pretty amazing. The big highlight for me looking back on George's career would be his win on Pla d'Adet at the Tour de France. Everybody loves a Tour de France win, and that was pretty spectacular for George. Such an honourable statesman and now businessman. I wish him all the best, we're certainly going miss him."

LOL Big George winning mountain stages - I forgot about that one. As we all know, Betsy gave Frankie a royal reaming when he rode tempo for Lance in the mountains, but I'm sure Georgie got a kiss on the cheek and accolades all around for that effort. After all, he married a podium girl who surely knew the "preparation" required for a big roleur like George to stomp out a win when the road turns uphill. I can't even imagine how ****ed off climber Sevilla was!

Hincapie's fraud is equal to Armstrong's to a large degree, yet his legacy will stay intact for the most part since he's a "nice guy". Same as Levi, who was doping up until the bitter end (this year).

Hearing all of these platitudes regarding these frauds doesn't give me much hope for the future, and makes me glad I'm not in Europe.

All the fraud's are equal, those who let it go on this long and until now are equally at fault. No flash back to some childish dream is going to erase that.

There's a case that's discussed in the Cafe that involves the same scenario of people letting it go on, just look how that turned out for them all. No one is saying lets just move on from here and forget the past in that case, are they?

Who George beat in the sprint yeah. Both of them had dropped Sevilla already by that point which was kind of funny. But heck I doubt Sevilla was a Saint so it's not like I'm crying for him. I'm just kind of speculating that if weren't for the blood doping era I just don't think Big George and Pereiro would even be in that position and the break on a mountain stage would be populated by climbers.
