While this blog doesn't purport to do politics, it's still worth noting stuff like the selfless campaigns waged by Saunier Duval last year and again this year. Last year the theme was human rights: the team assigned a right to each rider, and the rider rode (symbolically at least) in support of that right. What was accomplished, I don't know, but the program honored the hundredth anniversary of the Youth for Human Rights campaign.
This year's program turns to the environment, specifically deforestation in Mali, and it promises rather measurable results:
Pretty cool. If nothing else, it should take their minds off of having Iban Mayo as Gibo's Giro lieutenant, at least for a few early climbs.
