must be the Belgian beer

More Belgian fun. Check out the crazy finish at the Benelux Tour today.

From VeloNews:

The Eneco Benelux Tour ended bitterly for George Hincapie (in the red jersey) on Wednesday after arch-rival Stefan Schumacher (in yellow) hooked him in the final 50 meters, sending the Discovery Channel leader sprawling to the ground and causing him to lose the race on time bonuses. Schumacher started the 201km seventh and final stage three seconds behind race leader Hincapie, but the German rider bounded ahead to finish third behind winner Philippe Gilbert (Fran├žaise des Jeux) and runner-up Manuele Mori (Saunier Duval-Prodir) to earn a four-second bonus that nudges him into overall victory in the eight-day Benelux tour by one second.
Read the full of the story here.

And Hal thought he was taken advantage of at the race on Sunday. Either Hincapie was robbed or he's a whiner and should just shutup. It certainly hasn't been a banner year for him. Snapped bars at Paris-Roubaix, a lacklustre performance at the Tour, and now this.
