    BF Team in TdF?

    Hey All

    Having lurked for some considerable time before joining, I have the feeling that there is enough talent around here to assemble a pretty darned good list of personnel (at least as back-up and management) for a Tour de France team. And with TdF just around the corner (or over the next hill), I thought it would be good to see who you thought should, could, would be on that list.

    Me? I figure that for TdF these days, the most important choice is a good doc. Well, cbhungry gets my vote there. Then the chief mechanic -- well who can go past Rev.Chuck. Web promotions master Joe, of course. Diet and nutrition RTWD. ChrisL as the sanity inspector. Aerobics Koffee...

    I've run out of ideas.

    What about a motivational coach, a top-notch organiser, team manager, massager of souls and bodies, and there must be a place for A.Troll there as entertainment director, too...

    Let's go to it boys and girls and let your imaginations run wild (but nicely)!

    Well our TdF team definitely needs some downhilling talent. You see those wimps taking the road down the Alps...? I bet KleinMP99 and some of da boyz could take the direct route and get us some surprise stage wins. The UCI doesn't forbid full-squishies, do they...? :confused:

    Well, we know mechBgon would have to be part of the repair support team!

    Me doing aerobics? Nah... I'd be the one checking biofeedback and yelling through the earplugs when they're recovered enough to push and when they're too bonked to attack, etc.

    I'm all about the heart rate monitors....

    Or give your dinner to the guy in the pic. I'm sure he'll know exactly what to do with it.

    I saw that pic for the first time while I was eating my lunch (didn't really have time to respond). I actually found it amusing in a strange kind of way.

    P.S How can I be sanity inspector? I don't know a thing about "sanity".

    Great response there!!

    No matter how fast I'm going, I'm in no hurry.
    there are no bicycles in the valley, the only bicycle you find in the valley is the bicycle you ride down there.
    Ride in the front, this space is available to anyone that wishes to take it-jjmolyet

    I can be the team's "Graham Watson" and document our road to glory. I've been wanting to cross over into cycling photography, what better place to start than the tour? I can pose as a moronic tourist with a camera and step out in front of cyclists who are threatening our lead. I would sacrifice my body for the cause! LOL.

    I'll bike Joe! I love to climb!

    Although we would probably never win a stage. *sigh*

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    Sounds good, I can hang in the back for the sprint... as long as we have a 30 mile stage, not a 130 mile stage

    I propose all us chicks do the cycling. We can use the distraction factor.

    In that case I want to be in the team car. . .
    or maybe a spectator, no wait, I want to be a race official
