Sylvain Georges, AG2R La Mondiale, winner of California’s stage 6

May 19, 2012

Sylvain Georges crossed the uphill finish line of stage 6 of the Amgen Tour of California solo, rolled as far as his bike would take him on momentum, and collapsed onto the ground surrounded by a sea of photographers. He still wore the victor’s spoils on his cheeks at the press conference.

“I didn’t think I would win,” Georges said after the race. “It’s a bit of a shock.”

Did he go to sleep without washing his face?
