Summary

The work of Team Sky's `domestiques' - riders who sacrifice their own chances of victory to help their unit leaders by shielding them from opponents, creating slipstreams and setting the tempo of the race by riding at the front of the peloton or launching attacking moves. The progamme follows their work at the Paris-Roubaix race, on a route notorious for its bruising stretches of cobbled roads.
