So seeing a neutral car following Hincapie in today's TT got me thinking about team cars. I've always wondered how many cars each team has. Obviously not enough for each team member in the TTs, when the cars are out on course for over an hour.
Who drives the other cars? If a team has someone in a breakaway, but has a main contender still in the peloton, does the team manager stay back with the peloton and send an alternate car foward?
