The mystery life of the soigneurs

Many people wonder about the glory associated with working along side of professional cyclists. It takes a real love of the sport to do the job of soigneur. This video from the Orica-GreenEdge cycling team does show you wants inside those musettes that get handed out during the race.

 

Besides the contents of the musette bag the video provides some highlisgts into the work that soigneurs do everyday. When the riders are sitting eating breakfast they might running around getting special breakfast items delivered, carrying luggage bags down to the lobby etc. Also when the race is on its plenty of hurry up and wait as the drive from the feedzone to finish line. Orica is obviously sponsored by Powerbar this season with gels and energy bars being used in these musette bags.
