Wow, big action after the stage in the Tour today. Apparently, George Hincapie was staging an individual protest against specific sponsorship requirments (George has individual contracts with several vendors, inclucing Oakley and his own firm). The Badger was having none of that whiney greedy American bullshit, and pushed Hincapie off the stage. Later, it was learned that Hincapie was not actually protesting, but just waiting for his wife, who is a podium person….
