While the majority of Garmin-Cervelo’s final training camp was focused on pre-season training on the roads of Girona, Spain, the team opened its doors to the press for two full days for interviews and photographs.

Procycling magazine’s Jesse Wild had the chance to shoot several of the team’s stars for a forthcoming issue of the magazine.

“The Garmin-Cervelo training camp was an interesting experience. It could have easily been called the paparazzi training day also because there were so many press there!” Jesse said.

“The riders clearly had a lot of demands placed on them but I’m sure they were happy when the sun broke and they could go for a ride. It was hard to fulfil the needs of a Procycling feature due to all the other photographers present, but as a reportage piece it was interesting to see the riders bonding before the first races of the season.”
