Generally, the menu is soup and salad to start, then pasta and meat of some kind, followed by cheese and yoghurt and then dessert.

Often there will be a bottle of wine on the table and most riders will have a glass or two to help them relax and get ready for a good night's sleep.

It is likely that teams will eat dinner together.

It is good for team bonding and morale and also the opportunity for a group discussion about the day.
