Richie Porte and Team Sky have allowed cameras into the motorhome that the Australian is using as his base during his assault on the 2015 Giro d'Italia.

Team Sky leader Porte is sleeping in a motorhome - a recreational vehicle (RV) - for the duration of the race, with the vehicle parked up in the car park of the team's hotel. The idea is that Porte will be relieved of the stress of having to sleep in a different hotel every night, and avoid picking up illnesses. Porte joins the rest of the team at every other time, including meals.
