Hete Glassplinters

£42.00

Chris Keulen

As if you breathe in hot splinters of glass, that is how cycling in Senegal feels, according to former cycle racer Peter Winnen. The sports ingredients are: dust, dry soil and temperatures well above forty degrees celcius. For five years I followed the main cycling races of Africa, in Senegal, Cameroon, Eritrea and twice in Burkina Faso.

Hot splinters of glass shows life in Africa according to cycling. In 70 photos I show the African cyclists dreams and ambitions. It is about adventure and high aspirations. There is no team tactics, nor doping. An African cyclist must fend for himself.
