With team camp season drawing to a close Cyclingnews asked Mike Creed of Team Type 1 fame for his low-down on their camp at Gainseville, Georgia in the south-eastern US.
Creed lives just 20 miles away from where camp was held so he knows the roads well.
However, with bitterly cold conditions and snow, the riders were forced to spend most of the camp tucked up safely indoors.
Time was never wasted, though, and the team held several meetings with the management and sponsors.
