Video: Tour of the Sky team bus

Team Sky’s bus will serve as a second home for the squad’s riders for the next three weeks during the 2013 Tour de France.

The imposing vehicle has been specified to a high level and is finished in Sky’s black and blue livery, earning it the nickname the ‘Death Star’.

Team Sky driver Chris Slark gives you a video tour of the inside of the bus, showing you where the riders rest, relax and recline and – all importantly – giving away the secret of how the riders choose their seat for the race.

Ahead of the Tour de France, we take a look behind the scenes at the Team Sky team bus thanks to Gatorade  – the Official Performance Partner of Sky Pro Cycling. For more Team Sky videos from Gatorade, visit
