Backstage Pass 8 - Nothing Like TDF Jocks as a Memento

July 13, 2015

Stage 8's 112 mile saw riders finish on Mur de Bretagne, where Cadel Evans took the stage win back in 2011.

Cyclists this year had to contend with a head wind going into that final climb, but Backstage Pass is once again more about the antics and behind-the-scenes goings-on.

We're relieved to hear a stop was made during today's stage so the team could collect TDF merchandise jocks for all members - everyone knows jocks and socks are a universal treat for fellas so that should have gone down well once the boys got off the bike.

There's a bit more banter about language today, although this time it's the Aussie/Kiwi dialect in the firing line. And we also witness some of the mass hysteria for current King of the Mountain, MTB-Qhubeka p/b Samsung's Daniel Teklehaimanot.

More good fun from Dan Jones and the Backstage Pass team!
