Anyone see the ONCE car during the TT's...NPA

with some guy screaming at the riders thru a speaker on top of the car? "venga,venga,venga!" (come on,come on!)
saturday some poor guy was going along and the car guy starts yelling "arriba,arriba" so he gets up and gives it hell for about five seconds and starts to sit down....
"ARRIBA,ARRIBA!!!" back up he goes....freakin' hilarious.
maybe it works for those guys, but i'd be wondering how much time i'd lose by sitting up and shooting the car the finger.

ONCE does that on every time trail. I don't see how the riders stand it!

Sorry for spelling. Trail should have been trial!

...its a Spanish thing.... after living there for a few years its one of the things you pick up about them... its in their nature to prod each other on like that. Its cultural but not unlike the proud father yelling at his son to knock the ball out of the park.
