I would hate to be the mechanic of a winning team

Change everyone's bar tapes, tires out to yellow, make a brand new yellow bike? No thanks...I'll be the mechanic of Liquigas.

Dunno exactly how it works... but I wouldn't be surprised if they have a van full of yellow-tired backup wheels just in case Dunno about the handlebars, but I'm guessing that they practically do a complete rebuild of some bikes every night anyway...

...you'd have to really love cycling to 'work' for a pro team I reckon, what with the constant travel, long, long days, having to pander to those overpaid prima donna's .....Did anyone see 'overcoming'?...the 2nd DVD of 'extra's'....Bobby Julich gets stuck into a mechanic who forgot to change a cassette...whinging to Bjarne unmercilessly....I'm thinking, Bobby, Bobby...its a 2 minute job...do it ya bloody self!

Yeah, I saw it. That was pathetic. I lost so much respect for Julich because of that whining.
