Ramunas Navardauskas's Giro win one for Garmin-Sharp after Hesjedal's problems

Ramunas Navardauskas on way to winning stage 11 of Giro d'Italia 2013

Ramunas Navardauskas won one for his Garmin-Sharp team after Ryder Hesjedal's problems this week. Defending champion Hesjedal suffered in the last few days and effectively ended his overall chances after losing 20-53 minutes yesterday on the first summit finish.

"It's not about me, but the organisation and everyone that's been working so hard. It's not easy by any means, especially coming here after winning last year and having those expectations," Hesjedal told Cycling Weekly and a handful of journalists waiting above the dam at the finish.
