SNEWS® View: So, how close does the GU marketing team think the TV camera gets? Is anyone watching a bike race on TV, or in person, really going to read a bottle in a bike cage and go, "Oh Wow…that team uses GU" and then suddenly get the urge to go out and buy some? Perhaps they know something we don't. On the other hand, if they can make sure the team holds the bottle at chest level and then drinks from it in after-race interviews, they may have something there.
