BORA energises its commitment to cycling with a fascinating picture book Boys ‘n’ Bikes: Behind the scenes of professional cycling heroes

Raubling. BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH, the manufacturer of innovative cooktop extractor systems and title sponsor of the UCI WorldTeam BORA - hansgrohe, is supplementing its cycling-related activities with an opulent picture book. The premium-quality, large-format printed work takes readers behind the scenes of some of the most exciting races in which BORA was involved in 2016. From the Paris-Roubaix to the Tour de France, the impressive images from the renowned photographers Karen M. Edwards and Brian Hodes illustratively tell the story of the cycling highlights. Over more than 300 pages, the sequences of both black-and-white and colour photos spark enthusiasm among more than just cycling fans. They illustrate the breathtaking beauty of the landscapes, the different race requirements, the highlights and the indescribable magic of the Tour de France with its spectacular scenes in Paris. With trilingual captions, what makes this book so special are the unusually close, almost intimate insights into a dynamic scene and the personal experiences of the cyclists, who accept defeat with composure and celebrate victory with true exuberance. A book packed with power, aesthetics and speed.
