I was reading on letour.com, Bob Roll says the worst thing about riding in the rain is putting on a pair of wet shoes the next morning.

Could it be true that, with all the money spent organizing, equipping, and supporting a TdF team, that the riders only have one pair of shoes?

when he was riding. Today I doubt it. Just look at the buses that they have to arrive to the stages. Did you see "road to paris"? They even have cheffs preparing the food for the races.

He was just kidding, Bobke is an old crazy fart that you have to love, thats just is sense of humor. Maybe it was the fact that you know how you get a pair of shoes that are about to fall apart but you still put them on just because?? Nostalga, you won your first race in them, your first sexual experience on a mt bike ride, you know, monumental moments.

That much hasn't changed, despite the motorhomes and team support. It's got nothing to do with the money but more like a baseball player and his glove.
