We covered how Daniel Lloyd changes his bar tape in this video already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8PqH7bltJQ, but a few people wanted to see how the pro teams do it, so we caught up with Geoff Brown of Garmin-SHARP and asked him to show us his tricks of the trade when it comes to wrapping bars for professional riders.
Dan Martin won stage 9 of the 2013 Tour de France, and having ridden on the same bar tape for a week it was time for him to get it renewed with fresh tape. We were there when Geoff was working on Dan's bike ready for the next day and asked him to give us his tips.
