Long hours, many duties and low pay … for highly qualified applicants only
By Charles Pelkey
Helping a rider at the finish is just part of a long, long list of a soigneur’s duties.
What does one do in order to secure a job as a cycling team soigneur? What are the qualifications? What are the limitations? What are the pros and cons?
Well, I have to admit, that’s a topic with which I am not too familiar. I do know a few folks who have done the job, but it’s not something I’ve explored in great detail. I do know that the job is one of the busiest on a cycling team, to be sure, but I decided to ask a couple of folks who have a little more experience in dealing with the duties of a soigneur than I do.
Shelley Verses holds the distinction of being the first female soigneur to work in the ranks of top professional teams when she held the job for the old 7-Eleven team back in the mid-1980s. It’s remarkable, with 20+ years having elapsed since she broke that barrier, to see how much opposition she had from the ranks of a sport rooted in tradition. But that’s another story.
The job entails a great deal of responsibility, says Verses. Of course, the soigneur is perhaps best known as the team’s masseur, the staff member responsible for helping riders recover from a long, long day in the saddle.
“But they care for the rider in so many more ways than massage,” said Verses in a recent interview. “It encompasses so many more things … it is a term that is unique for the sport of cycling and the scope is very, very broad. You give them their start food, you feed them during the race, you do urine tests to check for glucose and protein, you assist the team doctors with stitching, you do wound care, you draw Epsom salt soaks ….”

Verses’ list includes an inordinate number of basic household duties, combined with those of masseuse, emergency room nurse, cook, driver and general go-fer.
Of course, the most notorious soigneur in the sport’s history, Festina soigneur Willy Voet, showed that those duties lapsed into the unethical at times, as well. As a result of Voet’s role in the Festina scandal of ‘98, team staff, including soigneurs, are subject to the oversight, rules and possible penalties under the provisions of the World Anti-Doping Code.
I checked with Jonathan Vaughters, the general manager of the Garmin-Slipstream team, to see what it is he looks for when hiring someone for that position. The list of necessary job skills is quite long. Garmin, he said, considers only applicants who are accredited massage therapists. But that’s only the first of many requirements.
Vaughters went on to say that he also looks for applicants who have the ability and desire to work very long hours, doing the very basics “like laundry, filling bottles, cleaning cars, and preparing food.”
The team also requires that applicants have strong language abilities, noting that French and Spanish are “almost a must.”

On top of that, the applicant should probably also have a truck driver’s license (the “Class C” permit here in the U.S.) and have excellent navigational skills. Of course, given his team’s title sponsor, Vaughters is quick to note that requirement is now made “a bit easier with Garmin!!” (Nice plug there, Mr. Vaughters.)
Vaughters adds that in addition to being able to drive a truck and know where the heck you’re going, you would have to be able to do that for long hours on a daily basis. Then, to top it all off, you have to be willing and able to be on the road and away from home for three to four months at a time.
“Massage,” concludes Vaughters, “is the easy part.”
Being an old guy with a family, I think I’ll take a pass on that one, but if that sounds like a job for you, David, we wish you the best of luck. Maybe we’ll see you out on the road some time. Of course, from the sounds of it, you may be too busy to talk.
Color Coded sorting.
I hope you aren’t color blind, because that would suck.

This unique reference to the 2012 International Building Code marries the graphic skills of bestselling author Frank Ching with the code expertise of Steven Winkel, FAIA. It pulls out the portions of the building code that are most relevant for the architect and provides an easy-to-understand interpretation in both words and illustrations. Rather than a text-heavy book, this is much more conducive to quick comprehension of the code, presenting information in an exciting user-friendly visual format.
Five Trends in the 2012 International Building Code covered in the 4th Edition of Building Codes Illustrated by Steven R Winkel
The new 4th edition of Building Codes Illustrated is aimed at two audiences. The first is students and emerging professionals who are just learning to use the building code. The second audience is more experienced practitioners looking to validate their interpretations of code sections and to familiarize themselves with changes made in the new 2012 International Building Code. The new 4th edition of Building Codes Illustrated uses graphics, the language of designers, to elaborate on the book’s text to clarify code intent and requirements for code users. Below are trends I noticed while revising the 4th Edition text to accompany the wonderful illustrations of Francis D.K. Ching. These are just a few examples of the many changes to be found in the new code.
One trend in code revisions today is to make changes to “clarify” the code. These changes often involve not only rewording sections, but reorganizing the order of various sections. Section number changes make it very hard to find items based on remembering section numbers from old codes. In my code consulting practice I advise designers to never do code work from memory. While the code text indicates in the margins where sections have been deleted, it gives no guidance about whether the section has just been moved, or wholly deleted. This book gives guidance for such changes.
Outpatient medical care occurs increasingly in facilities not located in traditional health-care centers. It is becoming common to find outpatient surgical procedures happening in tenant spaces. New requirements in Section 422 address fire separations of these medical spaces from adjacent tenants where the patients may be rendered unconscious or unable to move readily in an emergency. Examples of facilities that could be covered by these provisions are laser vision clinics and kidney dialysis treatment centers.
The code requirements for fire protection of overhangs located close to a property line have always been confusing. There are revised code provisions for how to measure and protect overhangs that are accompanied by new illustrations in our book.
Open “exit” stairs were relocated in the Mean of Egress Chapter, IBC Chapter 10, from the Exit section in Section 1022 to be “exit access stairs” in Section 1016 in the 2009 International Building Code, as illustrated in the 3rd Edition of our book. This revision was revised yet again in the 2012 code into requirements for open and enclosed stairs in Section 1009, as illustrated in the 4th Edition.
Guard rail heights in R-3 occupancies and inside R-2 occupancies have been reduced in an Exception to Section 1013.3 to 36 inches from the 42 inch height previously required. This aligns the IBC with the International Residential Code requirements for one and two family dwellings.
There are numerous other changes described and illustrated in the new 4th edition of Building Codes Illustrated.
