How 17-Time Tour de France Racer Balances Entrepreneurship & Relationships

 

On this Walker Webcast, George Hincapie sat down with host Willy Walker to discuss his successful businesses, the future of cycling and adventure tourism, and the results of both the Tour de France and ongoing Olympic games. 

Watch to hear about how George became a tour de force in business.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

One of the most well-known names in the cycling industry, George Hincapie defined the term domestique, making a name for himself by serving his teammates and putting their needs above his own. George began racing as a young boy, winning 10 junior national titles and two world medals prior to joining the professional ranks. The following 19 years brought victories in a record 17 Ronde van Vlaanderen races and a second-place finish at the grueling Paris-Roubaix, which was the best placement of any American. George also competed 17 times in the Tour de France and won three U.S. National Road Race championships. In 2012, George retired from the professional racing circuit, but he continues to be directly involved in product development and testing for the sportswear company, as well as an integral leader for the pro cycling team.
