Friday Video: Watercarriers

Watercarriers – back in the days they carried real bottles

Somehow you always think that modern cycling started in the Merckx era, professional teams, equipment, diets and all other elements enhancing heroic achievements. During the 1973 Giro d’Italia Jorgen Leth made a beautiful documentary on the main stars of the race and, even more interesting, on the so called water-carriers in the peloton. The real story starts at 1.30min. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
