Lots of people blog about Cycling. But it strikes me that there is a huge part of cycling that is nameless–virtually lost within the sea of surging Lycra and carbon fibre that is the Pro-Peleton. These are the Cycling Domestiques.
Cycling is about teamwork. At least that’s what they say. Yet so much time and energy is devoted to the Superstars-the guys we know simply by their first names- Lance, Alberto, Tommeke, Cadel, Levi, Andy…..
But who are these other guys in heavily Logo-ed, overly bright Lycra, pedaling twice as hard while maneuvering through the peloton and carrying what looks like half their body-weight in water bottles and nutrient bars?
These are the guys who make the superstar’s life easier- the superstar’s race-day entourage-his escorts in the peloton, they are the Cycling Domestiques. This is a blog about them. It’s their story, their lives, and maybe the moment their own star shines a bit brighter.
