Quick Change TdF9
Each team has two team cars trailing the peloton (or the break if they have a man up there) ready to aid their riders in whatever way necessary. Geraint Thomas (Sky) had been driving the pace at the front of the peloton until he had a front wheel puncture (flat tire). As he dropped back through the peloton, he radio his car letting them know what he needed. Once the pair joined up on the road, the mechanic was able to jump out of the car with the correct wheel, quickly sending Thomas on his way back through the convoy of team cars.
