soigneur (swʌnˈjə) / noun / Definition in English: In cycling, a person who gives training, massage, and other assistance to a team, especially during a race.

Soigneur is French for “caretaker,” so we basically do everything except take care of the bikes. We provide massages, make breakfast/lunch/dinner (depending on hotel facilities), shuttle riders to and from the airport, feed the riders during the race, make the race food for on the bike,do the laundry, and take care of first aid issues when doctors aren’t around. We’re like the team mom for the cyclists.
