The car has 8 bikes on the roof, 4 of them ready to ride and 4 of them with the front wheel missing. There is a strategy for placing the bikes on the roof to help mechanics service the team leaders first. Bikes have been put into a gear that is easy to ride in instantly if needed 6 spare wheels are stored on the roof too. Also on the roof are aerials for both television and radio communications. The mechanic sits in the back and two sports directors in the front. The car doors storage pockets are filled with energy products, sweets and suncream. Women's stockings are also in the car, these are used as an ice pack. Fill them with ice-cubes and give them to riders to put down their jersey when the temperature is high! The mechanic has a full portable toolkit in the back seats as well as spare race radios and a TV screen and diagram of where each rider has their spare bike on the roof of the car. In the boot/trunk of the car, each rider has a "wet bag" which contains spare clothing items for different weather conditions. Nice and simple! As well as some spare helmets.
