" “I think we can safely say we will all leave Gracia-Orlova on a high. Not only because of the bike race results but Ally may have even referred to the trip as “summer camp”, with our Sanatorium accommodation and our karaoke bus journeys to and from the race every day. Even at our last meal together in the airport hotel this evening there was not more than 10sec of silence, mainly filled in by another comment on hot topic of the week “The hunger games”! But even if I may have been outvoted from the hypothetical hunger games team of Ally and Evie, we all decided that we would definitely not be voting anyone out off the team island of Specialized-Lululemon and maybe that was the key to our success this week?” "
Lovely blog from Katie Colclough, on winning the final Gracia-Orlová stage, & life in the team
