Kind of sorta of
Two years ago, Stefan Schumacher sent George Hincapie to the floor (yes, I’m brushing up on Leggisms) at the Eneco Benelux Tour. Hincapie looked to be set up for the win in the GC. But 50 meters from the line of the last stage, he tangled with then 2nd place Schumacher, who continued to the line and picked up bonus seconds to take the victory.
the leader’s jersey is red, not yellow
In yesterday’s stage of the Tour. Schumacker is in yellow (still a huge surprise). In the final kilometer , Schumacker hit the deck after a tangle with Hincapie’s teammate, Kim Kirchen. Kirchen, continued to the line and took the Yellow Jersey.
“It’s like a bad movie for me,” Schumacher said. “It’s not fair to give the jersey away like that. I don’t know why Kirchen moved into me. I felt really good. After that accident, I had no chance anymore.”
