    11 Bottles

    At one point during a stage (can't remember which one), Phil/Paul were commenting on domestiques and how the rules state that riders can only carry 11 bottles, max. I tried this last weekend, here's what I got:

    1 bottle in each cage (2)
    1 bottle in each jersey pocket (3)
    2 bottles down the back of my jersey (2)
    1 bottle in my right hand (1)

    That's 8 bottles. Where do the other 3 go? Beats me. FWIW, the domestiques they were showing did not have musette bags.

    I've seen a rider stuff as many as a half dozen down his jersey. And don't forget, he might be carrying his own in his teeth too!

    the record, at another race, is in the 20's. 26 sticks in my head for some reason
