George Hincapie (BMC) and Heinrich Haussller both lined up for the start of the 2012 Tour of Flanders in Bruges on Sunday morning. The veteran American could set a record for the number of Flanders finishes if he crosses the line today. Currently tied on 16, one more Ronde would see him set yet another record in his illustrious career.

Haussler, 10 years Hincapie’s junior, lines-up as part of a strong Garmin-Barracuda team. Like Hincapie he has podiumed in Flanders but without top form he finds himself in a support role for Sep Vanmarcke.
