Cameras follow British DS on toughest stage of last week's race... a trying day for the Garmin-Sharp boys...

Here's another video from Tirreno-Adriatico, this one following Garmin-Sharp directeur sportif Charly Wegelius and boy, what a stage to choose - Monday's brutal Stage 6 including that by now infamous 30 per cent climb to Sant Elpidio a Mare that an ever-shrinking peloton had to negotiate three times. It was tough for the riders, and it wasn't a brilliant day at the office for Wegelius, either, with a host of problems to deal with.

If you had Sebastien Rosseler, Rohan Dennis, Tyler Farrar or Dan Martin in your Fantasy Cycling team that day, the video also sheds a bit of light on where it went wrong for each of them...

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
