BORA hansgrohe German Professional CyclingBand of Brothers




BAND OF BROTHERS – a group that shares a common goal. People who trust one another in pursuit of this goal, rely upon each other unconditionally, and mutually support each other. From this support comes courage, authenticity, loyalty, a sense of responsibility – and ultimately success.


These values have always connected us. The term was invented, one animated evening in a Dolomite lodge within the Lienz mountains. It immediately became clear: three words stand for how we have lived for several years. A common goal, a common path: BAND OF BROTHERS was born.
