After a rain-interrupted coffee stop ride during the Madison Genesis training camp in Majorca last week, Cycling Weekly caught up with the 28-year-old Irishman Pete Hawkins over another coffee...and some sun.

CW: How's your first training camp with the team going so far, Pete?
PH: It's been good so far. It's good to get the team together – albeit without the Kiwi riders [Mike Northey and Tom Scully] – and do some decent rides with them all. It's also nice to get a feel for how the winter's been, as you never know how your form is until you get to a camp.
