As a cycling fan, I think grand tour cycling is the probably one of the best examples of teamwork there is. The team give everything for their main rider, which could be a sprinter or GC rider (the person riding to win overall). The actual team lead is usually not the main rider, they are doing a job, which usually goes unnoticed, to get their main rider into the winning positions throughout the race (which lasts for three weeks). Everybody has a job to do in the team and gives it their all. If they don’t give it their all the outcome is simple, the team will stand little chance of winning.
