Adam Blythe and Peter Kennaugh, Giro d'Italia 2011, stage two

British pro Adam Blythe is gaining experience in his second Grand Tour this month in the Giro d'Italia. In the first sprint in Parma on Sunday, his Omega Pharma-Lotto team worked for him.

"Days like that you can learn a lot from," Blythe said. "There's not many at all really [flat stages] this year, but I'm taking it day by day, I think in a couple of days' time there will be a sprint again for me."
