Hincapie at 1996 Olympics

Hincapie @ 1996 Olympics

In honor of his gigantic stage win today, I offer a candid snap of a much younger George Hincapie chatting up the crowd before the 1996 Olympic road race here in Atlanta.

I'm working on getting a full gallery of photos from that race up, but in the meantime, here's Hincapie, just after his first Tour de France with Motorola.

The 1996 Olympics were the first games where the road race and time trial were open to the professionals. Hincapie rode with Lance Armstrong, Frankie Andreu, Greg Randolph, and Steve Hegg (just 5 riders per country, right?).

As always, click through for a larger image, and to see some of my other cycling pictures, including shots from three stages of the 2005 Tour de Georgia, and a gallery of shots from the 1996 Olympic time trial.
