Tour 2012: Thanking Hincapie

As he crossed the line, Cadel Evans reached back to shake hands with George Hincapie.  George had been out in a break away, but was called back to help keep his team leader from losing too much time on the Team Sky armada.  Hincapie wrecked during the stage, was patched up by the race doctor, and still had the strength to keep Cadel in third overall.  Hincapie road every Tour win with Lance Armstrong, but he also rode with Cadel and Contrador in their Tour victories, as well.  He is the absolute definition of a "Super Domestique".  When George Hincapie broke his silence about the accusations against Armstrong, that is when I knew it was all true.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that can be yours by visiting my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
