George Hincapie is the man for BMC Racing Team today, according to sports director Mike Sayers. He told Cyclingnews at that Hincapie was fresh and would be the captain on the road.
"He's fresh, he didn't race yesterday [at E3 Prijs Vlaanderen-Harelbeke]," he said. "George has got the experience, so he'll be calling the shots. We've just got to stay out of trouble on those narrow roads, especially near the coast."
Sayers was racing on the day Hincapie won Gent-Wevelgem in 2001. Although he'll be in the team car today, Sayers is still in good shape and showed the younger members of the BMC the Classics ropes on training rides last week.
"I was racing for Mercury when George won," he said. "Being on this side of things [a director] is far more relaxed than racing. If I were still racing I'm sure I'd be feeling pretty nervous right now."
