Video: In the Garmin-Sharp car at Tirreno-Adriatico with DS Charly Wegelius

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...
