Discovery Channel's George Hincapie is already making plans for his post-racing career. Hincapie already owns an eponymous sportswear company with his brother Rich, and the pair are now teaming up with other Greenville, South Carolina investors to establish a 300-acre 'performance village'. The facility will be called the 'Pla d'Adet' after the famous Pyrenean mountain where George Hincapie won his first individual Tour de France stage in 2005.

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains to the north of Greenville, South Carolina, the community will include home sites, a hotel, conference center, restaurant, media center, and state-of-the-art fitness and training facilities as well as two four-mile outdoor tracks, one for cycling, the other for mountain biking and trail running. The groundbreaking is scheduled to coincide with this year's US Pro Championships on September 1, and completion is expected in spring 2008.
