Tour de France: How riders use the sticky bottle to gain an advantage nephew

Or in the case of the Tour de France, a helping bottle.

Like most sports, cycling has its own unwritten laws. Informal gamesmanship means rules are bent -- to gain an advantage over opponents — but not broken.

Which brings us to the 'sticky bottle' -- or as they say in French: 'la bouteille collante.'

Should a cyclist need a drink of water, they approach their team's car and receive one from the director. Upon handing the bottle back, they retain their grip for just a little longer so as to receive a quick boost of speed.

A toot of the horn from one of the race organizer's cars is issued as a warning if the rider is deemed to be holding on for too long.

Judges will often not punish the rider, although a time limit of one or two second seconds is usually enforced.

However, earlier this season Romain Bardet was expelled from the Paris-Nice race after the Frenchman was caught on camera holding onto his team car.

Most famously, Italy's Vincenzo Nibali, who won the Tour of France in 2014, was disqualified from La Vuelta -- the Tour of Spain -- in 2015 following a 'sticky bottle' moment.

As well as the 'sticky bottle,' cycling also occasionally makes use of the 'magic spanner,' which involves the mechanic in a team car 'making repairs' to a rider's bike, in effect pulling him along with the vehicle.

History of the Tour de France

There have been four cyclists who have won the tour five times:

- Jacques Anquetil of France (1957 and 1961-1964)- Eddy Merckx of Belgium (1969-1972 and 1974)- Bernard Hinault of France (1978-1979, 1981-1982, and 1985)- Miguel Indurain of Spain (1991-1995), the first competitor to win five consecutive races.

Lance Armstrong held the record for most Tour de France wins (seven) but he was stripped of those wins in 2012.

France has won more times than any other country. (36)

Three Americans have won: Greg LeMond (1986, 1989, 1990), Lance Armstrong (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005) and Floyd Landis (2006). Both Armstrong and Landis have had their titles stripped due to allegations of doping.
