It helps to have friends in the peleton as well, you help someone one day, you may get a little assistance when you need it as well.
Remember, its like this, all these guys work in the same office, just in different departments. There is office gossip, rumors, alliances etc... And becuase riders often sign 1 or 2 year contracts, or the sponsors sign 1 or 2 year contracts. A lot of guys ride for a different team, (department) every couple of years or so. So you get to know a lot of other company employees so to speak.
