Look closely. See something different, than your standard Hincapie pic?

?


?


?


I didn't notice it at first either, but if you look at George's feet, you'll notice he's no longer wearing Carnacs. Nike must have bought out his contract, or maybe it just ran it's course.

yeah, i know. kind of trainspotterish to notice :rolleyes:

George was/is a Carnac Man

maybe now that he's being promoted to leadership and that LA is retired and maybe Johann and Co are expecting Huge things from him this year, Nike may have taken over as his shoe sponsor. I haven't seen GH recently in any Canranc ads.

Was.

Can't see any pro wearing one product, then switching mid-season (unless something dramatic happened).

I think you pretty much nailed it. at least that was my guess.

I thought what was wrong with the picture is he's being touted as a team leader but got beaten by 2 of Basso's domestiques in the [flat] TT. Must have been a shoe problem.

Those two domestiques also happen to be strong riders in their on right. Don't forget Dave Z won TT's in the Giro and Tour last year. Julich is no slouch either--bronze at the '04 Olympics, winner, Paris-Nice, Critierium International, etc. Hincapie as a team leader has already been discussed at length on this forum but I just want to say this: Hincapie is a much wiser choice for leader than Danielson when it comes to the Tour.

Obviously, especially considering the fact that Danielson WON'T BE RIDING the TdF.

:D

Maybe I shouldn't say this....

In an interview appearing in the Gazetta dello Sport (Italy), Paolo Savoldelli thought he may very well be the team leader for the TdF.
