"Mr Cancellara always sits at the front," says Trek Factory Racing's press officer Tim Vanderjeugd as he takes us on a tour of the team's bus at the Tour de France. Everyone has their own spot and there's plenty of room - public transport this most certainly isn't.

The team bus is crucial for the riders as they seek to minimise stress before and after each stage. Not only do they need space to relax, they also need to do the things they don't always have time to at the hotel. Trek's bus has all this covered with a kitchen, a coffee machine, wi-fi, showers, a first aid station and cupboards full of food and recovery products.
