Where are the sexy ladies holding the bike in the time trial starting line?

I remember there were sexy ladies holding the bikes for the riders before
each guy launches in the time trial. Where are they now? Looks like it is
a male referee doing it now??

was this the TDF?......sorry, I've never noticed them, it's ALWAYS about the riders & the bikes for me. Dunno why anyone would PAY eye candy to hold the bikes, when they could hold an auction online for blokes to BID for the opportunity to do the same job!

yes, time trial!
I saw it last year or couple years ago. I remember it especially when it looked like
the lady hands were behind lance's butt.

That was for a TTT. It was illegal and you may not see it again.

They may have done it for the ITT. I don't recall.
