Guillaume Martin looks to begin Giro d’Italia ascent on Mount Etna

Altitude camps aren’t simply about filling the legs with kilometres and the lungs with rarefied air, they also serve to prepare the mind for what is to come. When Guillaume Martin was choosing a training site ahead of the Giro d’Italia, he settled on an evocative location.

Rifugio Sapienza, perched on the southern side of Mount Etna, will host the finish of stage 4 of the Giro on Tuesday afternoon, and the mountain refuge also doubled as Martin’s training base last month as he prepared for his debut in the corsa rosa. During his time at Cofidis, Martin had usually carried out his altitude work at Sierra Nevada, but the brooding volcano proved irresistible ahead of the Giro d’Italia.
