The myth of the TOUR DE FRANCE in powerful images. The paintings “smell of burning sweat, curdled blood, melted tar, mown grass and dust thrown up, of sun and summer rain. One sympathizes with the battered bodies of the drivers, as well as with the waiting, happy, eating and drinking crowd at the roadside. You literally want to climb into the pictures, put your hand on the dejected driver's shoulder, give him comfort, or toast the spectators with baguette and wine.” – Karsten Migels

The photographer Tino Pohlmann accompanied the Tour de France as a photographer for 10 years, lived and suffered with it. "In the end, you still get more back than you put into it. The book tells about my deep inner connection to this extraordinary race, its roads, drivers and fans."
