    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.

    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.

    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.
