Saddle company Prologo have presented a few limited edition versions of their saddles to the CSC-Saxo Bank team at this year’s Tour.
Fabian Cancellara has been riding a personal Scratch TR for a while, featuring rainbow stripes in the company’s logo and the time from his world title victory on the side. Teammate Carlos Sastre has also been given the personal treatment now with his own version of the Choice Max TR.
As well as the Spanish GC contender’s name on the side, the saddle nose features a dummy (pacifier) with the words “Papa Mejor” (the best daddy). It’s a strange motif to have, but obviously harks back to his 2003 Tour stage win when he took one from his back pocket and crossed the line with it in his mouth to celebrate the birth of his daughter.
