American outfit Garmin-Barracuda perfected their sprinting this weekend at their team camp in Calpe, Spain.

With Tyler Farrar gunning for a number of targets in 2012, including the Classics, green jersey at the Tour de France and the Olympic road race, the team has recruited a number of riders to beef-up his leadout train.

The experienced Robbie Hunter returns after a year with RadioShack, Koldo Fernandez joins from Euskaltel and Murilo Fischer has extended his stay with the team. Heinrich Haussler, currently in Australia, will also help Farrar, while also having his own chances.

The team has also brought in a sprint coach with a strong track pedigree to help propel them to glory. These photos from Lucas Gilman show the team hard at work, both in the sprints and out on the hills.
