George Hincapie and Johan Bruyneel Interview
Q&A with the man in yellow.
today I've got the yellow jersey! And that?s all I'm thinking about right now.
You?ve said several times before that you are in the best shape you?ve ever been in - how do you quantify that?
Power to weight, the way that I feel - I am more confident and I feel that I have as much if not more experience than anyone else in the pro peloton - that has to count for something. I feel great training, I have great numbers, and I am better than ever.
Johan Bruyneel Q&A:
It appeared that George was aggressively seeking the yellow jersey by attacking in the final intermediate sprint. Does this signal a change from the team's previously announced plan of being an agent of chaos rather than trying to control the race. Will Discovery try to defend the jersey?
I think what happened today is a perfect example of what I have been saying for the last few weeks. Right now we don't know what we can take to
So how did it set up?
Will you defend the jersey tomorrow?
There's always that question? it would have been huge if George had won the jersey yesterday - that would have been a big statement. But that didn't happen and the little luck he lost yesterday, he got back today. He had to be lucky: if Boonen had won or Hushovd had been in the Top 3 he wouldn?t have the jersey. I think it's logical and we have shown in the past that if you have the jersey, at least the first day you defend it. We have to think that is good for the atmosphere of the team and something to build on. And if we can keep it another day, we're going to try, but if the sprint decides that somebody else gets it then that's OK, but tomorrow we'll definitely try to defend it.
