    This year's World Champs finish was probably the most emotional one I've seen, only equaled by Peaty finally winning in Oz.

    They're not just a team...they're THE team. Love the shot of Greg in the start-hut...pure stoke.

    Awesome team. I'd imagine working for the Syndicate must be like working for Makita Suzuki while Carmichael was there. Big up Greg
