He continues to be actively involved in professional cycling as owner and general manager of UCI Professional Contintental team Hincapie-Leomo.

Since retiring, Hincapie has parlayed his cycling fame into a multi-faceted business career that in addition to his cycling team includes: Hincapie Sports, a line of high performance cycling-ware; Hotel Domestique (Greenville County, SC) which caters to cyclists; and several Gran Fono events in Chatanooga TN and Fort Worth TX, in addition to his signature event in Greenville.

Gran Fondie Hincapie is an extremely populer and well run event that travels many of the same roads Hincapie used to train for the Tour de France. The ride base is Hotel Domestique which is 20 miles north of Greenville at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Gran route is just over 83 miles with 8,000 feet of elevation gain. The Medio route is 49 miles/4,200 feet, and the Piccolo route is 15 miles/1300 feet of elevation gain.
