Tour De France Cyclists Prefer Motorcycles ?

Coming back from my stint in Finland and Estonia, and wading through streams of press releases and emails, I found several photos of Tour de France cyclists on motorcycles.

Having seen the tribulations these cyclists go through when riding their bicycles in the mountains, I too would prefer to ride a motorcycle.

BTW, for those of you who don't know anything about the Tour de France Open link in a new window, the first photo is that of Frank Schleck Open link in a new window, who ended up third in this year's TdF.
