A Wave from the Train

by Old Bone Machine

Thor Hushovd sprinted to victory on Stage 3 of the Tour of Poland. A wave from the train came from his BMC team member Taylor Phinney as he crossed the finish line.

There is joy sometimes in giving someone a helping hand.


The next day Taylor Phinney again waved for joy. With a valiant solo escape, seven kilometres from the finish, he claimed his first road victory as a professional.


This is how I always dreamed of winning – foiling the sprinter’s plans at the end of the race. It was sort of a Fabian Cancellara-style, Milan-San Remo victory scenario. It’s really amazing to have it happen and it was a great feeling to finally put my hands up.
