Videos: Behind the Scenes at Tour of Britain with Madison-Genesis

Roger Hammond's team was in the mix throughout last week's race - and had cameras following them...

Madison-Genesis were in the mix throughout last week’s Aviva Tour of Britain, with Tom Stewart spending three days in the mountains jersey but ultimately thwarted in his efforts to win it despite an heroic effort on Saturday from Roger Hammond's team.

The competition went down to the wire on the very last climb of the race, ONE Pro Cycling’s Pete Williams taking the jersey after his team saw off a determined ride from Madison-Genesis who had reeled in the break to try and set up Stewart.

Madison-Genesis riders did however occupysecond and third places on the classification through Stewart and Mark McNally.

Videographer Corinne Walder accompanied the British UCI Continental team throughout a helter-skelter week of racing through Wales, Scotland and England, producing a series of three behind-the-scenes videos that give a flavour of the race from the inside, Here they are.

Crikey is right, your comment is shallow and at best ignorant. Take a look at Roger's achievement both before & after joining Lance's team. Roger is extremely well respected in the cycling community and this type of comment is extremely offensive.

Roger Hammond who was Junior World Cyclocross champ then went to Belgium and rode himself silly for a number of Belgian teams in just about every Belgian race going?

Given that you're not fit to lace his drinks, never mind his boots you need to get sure or get in the sea...

You don't know me or what I'm fit for, so you can stop your threats and sod off.
