A tour of the team truck at the corsa rosa

Life on the road for a WorldTour team can be arduous and testing and a three-week grand tour such as the Giro d’Italia is as just as much a battle of strength and fortitude for the staff as much as the riders.

inCycle TV caught up with the Lampre – Merida mechanics and soigneurs during the Giro d’Italia to find out what goes into supporting a squad on the road. Including a behind-the-scenes tour of the Italian team’s truck of equipment and bikes, the video has interviews with members of the staff during the world’s second biggest grand tour.

Each rider at the race has three bikes, with the team leader provided with an extra ride. The truck is rammed full of the team’s other racing equipment – all the requirements a team would need for the corsa rosa.
