someone told me they do it on the bike, but with those bibs i think it would be difficult. how do they do it? there's no way they hold it for 5+ hours...
Occasionally you can see the riders pulling off at the side of the road for a "nature break" as Liggett & Co call it. The cameras never dwell on it of course. Some do the performance while riding and that can be seen too. Bibs? Lycra is stretchy.TrekFan said:someone told me they do it on the bike, but with those bibs i think it would be difficult. how do they do it? there's no way they hold it for 5+ hours...
ah, ok.damion said:If possible, there are pee breaks. NO ONE attacks the leaders while they are peeing.
If needed, they lift the leg of the shorts, and let fly to the side.
On big climb days, they may be sweating so heavily that it is not needed.
i'm sorry, but this i just don't believe...Ericmopar said:Not only do they pee while riding along, they somtimes pull to the back of the pack and slide their shorts down and slide sideways off the saddle and "leave a load, upon the road".
If they ride away contented, I have no idea.
This was accidently covered one year during a live stage broadcast.
How would you like to be the mechanic that has to handle the bikes after the race!
