    10 Worst jobs in Sports #9 Soigneur for Cycling

    Here's a good article in USA Today stating the ten worse jobs in sport. The 9th worst job is a Soigneur for a pro cycling team. I'll tell you one thing. I'll never do this job for 25K a year! A 100K yes, 25K no!

    It's an interesting read

    Shelly was awesome.
    I still eat Fig Newtons based on her recommendation.

    The worst jobs in cycling:

    Promoter: thankless
    USCF Official: long days
    Pace car driver: my arse hurts, and this car smells funny.
    Motorcycle marshal: my arse is numb.
    mechanic: it's 8pm. you've finally settled down for dinner, and now some guy is standing at your table asking if you can adjust his rear derailleur.

    I'm sure there's more.

    Try rentals!
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    alyssa morahan is technically a soigneuse, but i digress.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.
