There are more than a handful of toys that have been created there that have not seen the light of day outside of Santa Cruz or Morgan Hill. One of the perks of running certain departments and some cool stuff for sure.

Anyone care to speculate as to why this Lotto rider would be taking a feed from a Belkin mussette?

That's not rideable -- it's made of wood.

Too bad, as when I first saw it I thought it was extremely cool.

it happens often. sometimes if riders can't get to their own cars ( like in a breakaway) other cars will service them. riders in the break will sometimes share food/water as well. It's a you-scratch-my-back-I'll-scratch-yours agreement, especially if team sports directors know each other. It's less common because of the presence of nuetral support, but some teams will on occasion lend other riders a wheel if they need one.

Things in the peloton are actually quite friendly, although it can get complicated if you piss other teams ( especialy the bigger ones, with more presence and 'respect' ) , so it pays to be on generally good terms with everyone.

Yeah, I've seen the opposing teams' follow car hand a water bottle to a rider who is not on their team but that is usually in a breakaway situation. I just thought it was weird to take a feedbag considering the Belkin soignuer is actually standing there holding the bag and waiting for his rider to snatch it. Perhaps, the Belkin rider did snatch it, and handed it over to the Lotto rider (they could be ex-teamates). Could be.

Think about the Belkin - Movistar spats over last year.

I think the Sky-Movistar spats have probably been the biggest ones over the past couple of years, no?

"What is bothering me is that again today I had an accident in the feed zone. Oh geez. I never crash in the feed zone and now it is twice in one Tour. I’m so embarrassed.

I was behind a Europcar rider that missed his feed bag. So I grabbed it for him. But then my team was waiting for a bag just after. And sure enough I dropped one of them right into my wheel and fell. Oh did I feel stupid!" -Jens Voigt http://www.bicycling.co.za/race-news/to ... oser-baby/

So yeah, it's nice to lend a hand to other riders, especially when the weather's making everyone feel like crap.

Terpstra's shoe covers surely do look a lot like the one's I use - they were made for speedskaters originally, but Spinno (http://www.spinno.no) now specifically targets them for cycling aswell. Spinno makes fully custom aerodynamic clothing for speedskaters, cross country skiers and even special suits for ski jumpers. Their TT suit has been very popular with Norwegian track cyclists (not that there are many of them!) and is essentially a modified speedskating skinsuit.

Spinno also has a silver fabric like this. Guessing Terpstra has some friends or a connection in speedskating and got them from them :-)

Mine in action, all white though: https://scontent-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hph ... 3103_n.jpg

Yup - the fabric looks spot on - my girlfriend was a speed skater too! Looks like I have some emails to send :)
