As a decent climber and strong sprinter, Discovery Channel's George Hincapie could normally be listed amongst the potential winners of a race such as the Clásica San Sebastán. However the American Discovery Channel rider didn't have high expectations this morning. "I don't know how I will get on today... my form is not that great," he admitted. "I was really tired after the Tour so I wasn't able to train properly. But I hope next week that I will be going better in the Eneco Tour."

"After that, I will do the US national championships. I am hoping that I can finish recovering from the Tour [de France] and be good for those two races. That'll be the end of my season, then - I don't think I will be doing the world's."

Hincapie has a three year deal with Discovery Channel and says that the first part of next season will follow a familiar pattern. "My programme will probably be the same as this year... I will just focus on the Classics and then figure out what to do after that."
