i watched the prologue today and noticed that Oscar Pereiro's team CAISSE D’EPARGNE-ILLES BALEARS, is running new XC's as their support vehicles. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up!

This might seem like a minor technicality, but I caught a glimpse of the XC70 support vehicle yesterday during the first stage and it appeared to be a MY06 or 07. Cool to see nonetheless! [thumbup]

On a somewhat related note, check out SRAM’s support fleet of XCs. :)

I always suspected that color red would be fantastic on an XC70 too bad Volvo never offered such a choice.

Sorry - they don't look like MY08s to me - still look cool though....

It looks like they've sprayed the cladding gloss black.

Must be a heck of a weight in them to make them sit down at the back like that.

Hey - regarding the SRAM XC70's...I have a pic of my XC parked next to one in Monterey, California while attending the Sea Otter Classic.
I, myself, am a bike racer (not road, but downhill and 4x).

another volvo xc70 at a bike race. This was at the 2004 Tour of Geogria.
