The nine British riders taking part in this year's Giro d'Italia were in St Mark?s Square for the official team presentation on Thursday.

Mark Cavendish (Columbia), Bradley Wiggins and David Millar (Garmin), Jeremy Hunt and Dan Lloyd (Cervelo), Charly Wegelius (Silence), Chris Froome (Barloworld), Ian Stannard (ISD) and Ben Swift (Katusha) all posed for photographs in the sun and had a brief look at Venice. It was a long afternoon for all the riders but officially marked the start of the centenary Giro d?Italia.
