Jayco a Sponsor of Tour de France!!!

Folks -- I was watching the Tour de France last evening and noticed the Jayco brand name on a helmet. Upon checking into this, I learned that there is a Jayco VIS team:

Formed in 1995, The Jayco VIS team has since produced world-class cyclists such as 2007 World Number 1 Road Cyclist and 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans, Tour de France Yellow Jersey Leader Baden Cooke and 2012 Australian National Road Race Champion Simon Gerrans.

That's cool. I always watch the races. I ride my road bike about 75 miles a week but my average speed would not come close to what these folks do. I am very happy to ride at 16-17 mph for an hour or two. I can't imagine 25-30mph for 4 to 5 hours.......I just made myself tired typing that.

Not something you'd expect from Jayco, thanks for posting! I'm with eldermike, 17 - 20 for a few hours, but no way the 35+ the Tour guys average for hours on end
