How To Win A Bike Race In 5 Easy Steps (featuring George Hincapie)
3) Pimp Your Victory – I appreciate the fact that George went old school here with a classic 2 handed victory salute. In this modern era of cycling, with the ‘rock the babies’, the ‘archer’, the ‘pistol’, we have lost touch with our roots. It was refreshing to see that George kept it real.
5) Claim Your Prize – To the victor goes the spoils. It is important to take your time here. You don’t complete steps 1-4 and then sluff on step 5. This is your podium, enjoy it! I would have liked to have seen George drop a subtle wink on the crowd, but he decided to keep it simple. That is fine with me. Even though I just told you this is your podium, you don’t want to ‘raise the roof’ here. Treat it with the same respect George did.
Well done George, we hope to see you up there again soon!
