IAM Cycling bus gets stuck at Tour de Suisse

by CyclingTips

The IAM Cycling team bus ran into trouble on the way to the start of stage five at the Tour de Suisse, when the driver grounded the bus between a dip in the road.

Team manager Rik Verbrugghe was worried the team might miss the start of the stage.

Fortunately, for both the riders and the driver, the bus was able to become unstuck with a little local help and the team made it to the start on time.

It is rare for a team bus or driver to make the news and it usually means something has gone terribly wrong, like when the Orica-GreenEdge bus was stuck under the finish truss at the 2013 Tour de France.
