Team Leopard Trek Bidon

I found a couple of these bottles at a local thrift shop, of all places. I was wondering if anyone knew off-hand whether these might be replicas that fans can purchase (couldn't find anything on the team's website), or if this was more likely something that a fan picked up at a race. Given my proximity to part of the Amgen route, that doesn't seem like a huge stretch. Thoughts?

Race bottles are white.

These were probably bought by a fan.

Either way they are just plastic bottles with advertising.

Never figured that I'd get rich off of them, but if there was a chance that it might have once contained Jens Voight backwash or something, I'd leave it on the shelf at home.

as opposed to using them?

Thrift store water bottles? That's nasty.

For 99 cents, I figured cool little memento. Potential famous cyclist slobber a bonus.

If the top of the bottle was raggedly bitten off that could be Jens' bidon.:eek:

I hate those bottles. The tops are prone to popping off if you squeeze them too hard. But they do make decent bottle cage tool kits/storage units.

See, Leopard Trek is not available. It is rare and priceless.

Doubt it, wiggle probably doesn't carry it or the bottle is pre 2013.
