Important team members

And of course the poor old “domestique”. Don’t forget them! They make up an important part of the “coureur cyclistes” in the Tour and do lots of the tough work for their more glamorous team-mates but don’t get any of the glory. Thanks for the list. Enjoying watching highlights each evening here in Australia.

Bonjour Paul,

Merci beaucoup pour cette précision ! Très intéressant ! I did not know that term ! ;-)

Here's a link (in French) for more details about "les domestiques"Tour de France 2023 : les domestiques, équipiers au service du « roi »

Follow up comment:

As it is quite a "niche" term (and carries quite a connotation in French), we decided to add "un équipier" to the list of vocabulary rather than "un domestique"

Merci et bonne journée !
