When you see a rider being interviewed on TV you often see it against the backdrop of race sponsors. It’s slick publicity for the event and its backers.

But in reality the scene is not as pro as it might look. In order to make the interview with Philippe Gilbert happen during Paris-Nice a TV gofer had to carry the board in place and ended up blocking the race traffic in the name of television.

Thanks to the reader who sent in these photos.
