If you were a domestique in this year’s Vuelta, who would you want to work for? Given the extreme heat, I think I am not the only one wondering.
Best team – Gerolsteiner. Why? with riders averaging more than 30 bottles a day, why not ride for a water company? Plus those light blue jerseys help reflect the sunlight.
Worst team – Caisse d’Epargne. Look at those jerseys? Who picked black? Those guys must be dying out there! It actually makes me long for those multi-color jerseys of last year. Ugly yes but at least they were not in the “Cruel and unusual punishment” category! Now I know why Alejandro Valverde wants that White ProTour jersey so much!
