george hincapie finishes 2009 tour de france with broken collarbone

It never gets old, say it with me:  George Hincapie is da man!

After wrecking in Stage 17, Hincapie rode the remaining 70 miles of that stage with what he found out today is a broken collarbone.  Then, he rode stage 18, 19, 20 and 21, with a massive lead out effort on the final stretch of the Paris circuit to sling shot Mark Renshaw and Mark Cavendish in for the 1-2 finish.
