This is the latest edition of this on-going and unique collaboration between professional cyclist Michael Barry and photographer Camille J. McMillan. It's an honest, thoughtful and sometimes touching look into the life, trials, tribulations and triumphs of a cycling domestique - they are the servants to the team's success, ­­­above any individual glory.

In the third edition, which will also include new photographs from McMillan from the 2012 season, Barry incorporates a new epilogue on the changes in cycling during his 14-year career. This period has been one of significant transition. As Barry has ridden on a number of teams with different national backgrounds, different management styles, different budgets and different approaches to racing he has a unique and complete perspective.

His latest reflections capture the evolution in the peloton, the changing etiquette and respect within the group and the increasingly diverse cultural structure.
