From Valley Low to Glacier High: A Tirol Road Bike Picture Story


From portraits over landscapes to sports: Acclaimed British photographer George Marshall creates winning shots that are both authentically pure and highly aesthetic. He has dedicated his life to riding and documenting BMX at an early age. Later, he has moulded his passion into a career. He has now swapped his trick bike for a road bike and travels the world to capture photographs for the world’s leading sports and media brands. In late April, when spring and winter were still fighting against each other, George Marshall undertook a trek to the mountainous terrain of Tirol. “It is a hidden gem for dedicated road bikers and the mountains are of awesome natural beauty. I believe this could be the next road biking mecca”, he said after his trip across Tirol.
