Want to make sense of the Team Time Trial? Well here's the man with all the knowledge, Team Sky's Data Analyst Robby Ketchell to lift the lid on just how teams fine tune their performance. Click here to subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN The Team Time Trial is one of the most brutal stages for any rider, whether you're a climber looking to survive or a domestique looking to boost the chances of your team leader, everyone has to take it to their limit. But, what are the demands for the riders? Robby tells us exactly what the riders go through, from the power they put out on the front to scrabbling to hang on to the wheel in front. But it's certainly far more than a case of going as fast as possible. Each move is choreographed before hand by the team, and Robby explains how they pick the rider order and how it combines to make the whole team go faster. If Team Sky win Stage 1 of the Giro d'Italia, you know it's this man who'll be behind it. Music: Inf - Shell Case Serenade Buy GCN Cycling Kit!
