There are not many jobs less rewarding than being a mechanic in a pro cycling team.
Endless amount of hours.
Late nights. Early mornings. Stressful hours in the back seat of a team car. Thousands of kilometers driving between races all over Europe.
You've got to love it if you want to be in Business.
