Vdv_1_001 These photos just go to show how thousands of miles racing can transform a body. The Garmin ad to the far left has a photo of Christian taken during the team’s winter training sessions earlier this year. Next photo was from Team Garmin’s official introduction in Brest, France on July 3, with Christian shown on the far left of the stage. And the final shot of Christian—lean, clean and proving he can hang with the world’s best cyclists—was taken earlier this week, after stage 10.

Preparing_shakes_for_postraceWhat’s it take to bring these guys back up to their fighting weights after a long hard day of riding? Lots of calories and a little TLC from the rest of the support team. The team physician, Allen Lim, is an expert on what the guys need to consume to replace what they just burned. Immediately after the race, the team soigneurs make “muscle milk” (protein) shakes for the riders. This pic shows Josef making the souped-up shakes. Stay tuned for more “behind the scenes” pics and stories as the team enters their final week of racing.
