Default average team mates

Now this is not a thread about who is giving it all to help their leaders (Voigt style), or the best leadout man or, climbing domestique.
This is the thread about the guy in the team that for one reason or another seems very important to the team leader or the team itself, so he gets to take part in the biggest races in the world for no real reason.

Let me start by throwing out a name here: Noval, I mean Jesus Christ, they will use him in the tour once again
