I think Indurain did a Hell of Job for Delgado back in the day.

Sean Yates was one of the best. He even delayed retiring to help mentor Armstrong at the begining of Lance's career.
The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.
I agree with Yates, but George Hincapie has to be the greatest, the man still gets Lance his water even on charity rides.
I was thinking current riders but keep the greatest of all time coming too.
George is a good call but I tend to be more impressed with the climbers, probably because I can't climb worth *****. Piepoli can win any given climbing stage and has graciously let the team leader have the win after hauling their ass up the mountain. And he has to put up with Ricco.
Greg Lemond helping Hinault in 1985.
OK, I kid...
Seriously though, Rolf Aldag and Udo Bolts.
Gerg Lemond's uncle?
Currently, I would have to say Big George or Fabian Cancellara. All time, it would be tough to beat Yates.
Van Summeran helps Robbie and Cadel
Yates gets my vote for on road.
Hamilton, Beltran, Heras, and Floyd for helping Lance deflect all those doping accusations.
I can trump the lot of you. Eddy Schepers, circa 1987. Roche would not have won the Giro or the Tour without him.
How do I collect my prize?

Can't believe nobody remembers "King Rene"
In the history of the Tour de France, how can you say there is anyone else who can claim to be a greater domestique than Rene Vietto?
