I was driving one of the Mavic support cars back in the late 80's and yes it was a fun job. Being roving tech support, there was always something to do and when there were crashes, everyone was out the car helping and then driving like hell to catch back up to the main group or the break was very fun.
One race in Central Cal there was a huge crash and we were there handing out bike, wheels, etc for 5 minutes. When we all finally jumped back in the van, the mechanic Mitch Clinton kept telling me to drive faster and the race official was telling me to slow down. It was quite funny at the time.
