Over the last 10 days of racing at the Giro d’Italia, plus the pre-race prep and a pair of rest days, Team Sunweb has been putting together a series of behind-the-scenes videos to get a taste of what it is to race a Grand Tour. So far they’ve put together some pretty interesting content like following riders Phil Bauhaus & Chad Haga each for a fully 24 hours with a camera to really get a sense of what this type of day-after-day racing affects the riders. They also get a bit more technical with video topics like what all the team has to bring in the way of equipment to support a full line-up of riders over a three-week tour, and what the pro team mechanics get up to while the riders are out pedaling around. Check out these videos and more after the break. And we expect that there might be some more pink shaded coverage from tomorrow on since Tom Domoulin (that’s him in that photo above) just took over the Maglia Rosa after winning today’s 10th stage in the ITT…
