VeloNews interview with the team mechanic who saved Denis Menchov's Giro

So seldom are the men and women behind the scenes given the opportunity to shine while "just doing their jobs...."

Here's the VN interview with Vincent Hendricks, the Robobank team mechanic who leapt from the follow car to give a spare bike to eventual Tour of Italy winner Denis Menchov - almost before Menchov had stopped falling! A slower bike change would have cost Menchov his victory!

Is this story inspiring or what?
