NO SURGERY NEEDED FOR GEORGE AFTER CRASH AT ROUBAIX

Discovery Channel Pro Cyling team rider George Hincapie met with doctors on
Tuesday morning and it was determined that he will not need surgery
following his crash at the 104th Paris-Roubaix. George retuned to the
States on Monday evening and met with doctors Tuesday in Greenville, South
Carolina. Doctors determined the crash resulted in a 3rd degree separation
of his shoulder and bruised wrist. George's shoulder will be taped and
placed in a sling until he can resume riding.

"I was happy to hear that I will not need surgery. I will be off the bike
for about a week but look forward to resuming my training and be in form
for the Dauphine Libere in early June and the Tour de France," stated George
from his home in Greenville. Discovery Channel Sports Manager Johan
Bruyneel added "George's crash was disappointing as he was the leader and in
a good position with teammates Hoste and Gusev. He is a total professional
and I expect him to be in form for his next objective, the Tour de France."
