I first really watched the Tour de France with my then 1-year-old in 2006. I would read the team names out loud to him, usually mimicking the dulcet tones of the mighty Bob Roll. These were the 3 that still to this day make me crack a smile. And for their names appearing on sweaty spandex I am grateful.
  1. Euskaltel-Euskadi
    A Basque "regional" team who had glorious orange jerseys.
  2. Davitamon-Lotto
    A Belgian team sponsored by a vitamin maker and the national lottery.
  3. Bouygues Telecom
    A French company only made interesting by hearing it pronounced "boo-eeg."
