Angel Madrazo (Team Movistar)

We nearly burned the clutch out up Honister Pass. 

We sat two kilometres down the descent of Pen-y-Pass, with only scree and a stream for company.

We got food poisoning in Llanberis.

We rocked out to Rage Against The Machine heading into Sidmouth.

We gave a stranded photographer a lift from Dartmoor to Basingstoke.

We were kept entertained by our sat-nav's Jamaican voice for six days. It broke on the seventh and we spent an hour and a half looking for a hotel in West Drayton that wasn't actually in West Drayton.

We asked Angel Madrazo "where is the cheese?" in pidgin Spanish.

We talked to Wouter Sybrandy about his staggering recovery from a terrible crash.

We logged 1,500 miles in eight days around Britain. That's the equivalent of driving from London to Kiev.

Fantastic photography, love the atmospheric shot of Honister - really captures the sense of doom in the air. Great personality from Madrazo, and why does Rapha always look so bloody cool, even under grey British skies.
