Lasty & Si talk to mechanics on the build up to the 2017 Tour de France at the team hotels in Düsseldorf ahead of the Grand Départ.

Measuring bikes to the mm, or even smaller is without a doubt a tough job. One mistake could potentially end a riders season.

Living on the road is a very tough job, if a mechanic forgets a certain tool then they can be stuck up

Long transfers are certainly not a favourite, potentially driving through the night.

Gluing tubulars is, for many home mechanics a messy and most certainly a sticky job. 

Working in the rain is not a favourite of Pim Heemskerk of Team Sunweb, he prefers to stay inside the car on those days!
