It’s been an eventful opening of the Tour de France given the numerous crashes. Painful for the riders but it also means extra work for the team staff. Mechanics will stay up late rebuilding bikes and team physios are attempting to rebuild the riders.
If you want an inside look on this, take a look at the blog written by Garmin-Transition’s physio Toby Watson. It gives you a good inside view of the work involved, at times it sounds they’ve got more strapping tape than bar tape.
