Photographers: Paolo Ciaberta’s unique view on cycling

Monday, June 27th, 2016

 

We’re lucky to have worked with some great photographers over the years, so we thought it was time to shine the spotlight on some of them and ask them to select and explain some of their favourite images.

Sometimes, that means taking the sommelier’s advice and trying a new wine from little-known producer, and sometimes it means equipping our fleet of Pinarello Dogma F8s with red-hot new tech.
