but it's not my fault. My girlfriend, who has strangely been replaced with some girl who looks and talks like my girlfriend, but watches more of the Tour de France than I do, reads my cycling magazine voraciously and says very strange things like "Levi's cadence looks a bit off today," asked me a question I did not have an answer for. Here goes.

She was wondering how all of the team cars get from one start to the other when the riders all take a train or a plane to be at a start on the next day. In some cases, it doesn't look like they would have enough time to drive them. Anyone know?
Based on similar logistics in car rallies...Silverback

I think they just drive like hell, with the mechanics trading off and sleeping in the back. Only the drivers and riders get the glory.
But they might have two or more cars, too, and leapfrog. We only did the all-nighters because we couldn't afford anything else.
