Feeding the Tour de France riders
As I’ve mentioned before, I have food on my mind pretty much all the time, so I was excited to see these videos of how and what the riders eat.
First up, Team Garmin-Transitions built a custom kitchen from the back end of a van.
It’s pretty nice, but Team Saxo Bank puts them to shame by occupiying an entire semi trailer. Yikes.
From this kitchen, meals tailored for climbing.
Here Team Saxo Bank reveals what’s in the feed bags (musettes) they give out for on-the-go energy replenishment. Near the end of this video, you can also see how insanely fast the riders are, even when they’ve supposedly slowed down for the feed zone.
Finally, this collection of musette contents from Yay Cycling!
