Most who come to the Tour de France try desperately to watch the head of the peloton pass by, to get a glimpse of the sacred yellow jersey. But at least one person here at the race prefers watching it from the back. Meet Alain Daniel, the driver of the broom wagon, or voiture balai as it is known in France.
"His bike was destroyed, and the only thing I could do was pass him the neutral bike with toe clips. We called up his team car to stop but he still had to ride down the mountain and through the valley to get to it. That day I really played a role in helping him get to the finish under the time cut.
For decades the wagon had a broom symbolically attached to the front bumper. But former Tour de France director Jean Marie Leblanc ordered it to be removed (he said it was disrespectful to the riders). The broom wagon has rarely been used in recent years.
Perhaps the most memorable rider to abandon in the wagon was three time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond, who was forced to ride in the voiture balai to the finish after dropping out of the 1994 race. It was a sort of purgatory imposed on him by his director, Roger Legeay.

know, in the Tour there is no room for the sick or injured," Daniel said. "And yesterday there were so many crashes. Everyone was all over the place. And when those riders got dropped their directors knew some would abandon, so they gave priority to the riders who were crashing but who could still finish."

was a very moving moment. When a rider like Tom Boonen is lying on the road for five minutes before he gets going again all that time not knowing if he was going to get back up was a moment. And then he got back up and still managed to finish in the time limit with just one teammate. Total class.

year Tour. I never forget that one. Jens crashed going down the Aspin Pass in the Pyrenees. He was catching back up to the pack and missed a turn and ended up in a ravine. But his team cars were up the road when I came up to him as he was climbing out.
day, I came across Magnus Backstedt crying in the road because he couldn go any farther. But to see the winner of Paris Roubaix crying! That something you don expect.
The one time French national cyclocross champion is a familiar face at the Tour. And since 2004, he has been the man behind the wheel of the wagon.
For some, the broom wagon can be provide a sense of motivation as riders desperately want to avoid the humiliation of quitting. But for others the impending doom of the thing can simply be demoralizing.
Perhaps Daniel has a special empathy for those on the verge of collapse. As a rider he was often injured, and he broke his collarbone no fewer than six times in his career.
