Hincapie takes Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne with late break

VeloNews | Hincapie wins Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne

Discovery Channel's George Hincapie took K-B-K in nasty late-winter weather. Hincapie and Kevin Van Impe rode away from the field at 5 kilometers, and finished with 14 seconds in their pocket.

Hincapie outsprinted Van Impe, while Bert Roesems of Davitamon-Lotto took third, 6 seconds ahead of the field. It was Hincapie's first win of the season, and the first win by the Discovery Channel team under their new sponsorship.

Van Impe and Hincapie left the field as the day's contenders were watching each other and launching testing attacks.

That dude deserves every break he can get. He rides so hard for the team and doesnt get the glory of winning too often. Hopefully he will have a Paris-Roubaix podium finish.
