Not only do riders have to suffer through three weeks of a grand tour, but also three weeks of each other.
In this video, two of Orica GreenEdge's strongmen Brett Lancaster and Daryl Impey who spent two of the team's four days in the maillot jaune this Tour de France, takes Cyclingnews through some of the quirks within the squad's dynamic.
"Generally we get on really well and I think the most important part of this team is that we have a lot of fun," says Impey.
