Hincapie wins USA Cycling; Louder 3rd

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Hometown favorite George Hincapie sprinted hard the last 100 meters on rainy streets Sunday to win the USA Cycling Pro Road Race Championship.

Hincapie topped rivals Andrew Bajadali and Salt Lake City's Jeff Louder as a crowd cheered him to the finish.

Hincapie says he "was in full-crank mode" during the last dash.

Hincapie, with Team Columbia-High Road, finished in 4 hours, 33 minutes and 36 seconds to win his first U.S. Road Race championship since 2006.

Hincapie won his first national title in 1998 and got the victory after coming off a broken collarbone from a fall during the Tour de France.

Bajadali followed in 4:33.37 for Kelly Benefit Strategies and Louder, who attacked on the final lap before being caught by Hincapie, in 4:33.39 in third.

Patriots' Bruschi retires after 13 seasons

BOSTON (AP) — Tedy Bruschi is retiring after a 13-year career marked by an inspiring return to the New England Patriots as a starting linebacker eight months after a stroke.

A person familiar with his decision told The Associated Press that the 36-year-old Bruschi will announce his retirement at a news conference Monday morning. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made.

Bruschi played on all three Super Bowl-winning Patriots teams. The last championship game was on Feb. 6, 2005, against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ten days later he was hospitalized after experiencing numbness in his left arm and left leg and blurry vision and was diagnosed with a mild stroke.
