Favorite Tour de France team names circa 2006.
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.
- •Euskaltel-EuskadiA Basque "regional" team who had glorious orange jerseys.
- •Davitamon-LottoA Belgian team sponsored by a vitamin maker and the national lottery.
- •Bouygues TelecomA French company only made interesting by hearing it pronounced "boo-eeg."
