Hellerup, Denmark, July 24, 2013 -- (ACN Newswire) -- After crowdsourcing questions from its followers on social media, Saxo Bank, the online trading and investment specialist, joined winners of the Tour de France Team Competition on their bus for a chat.

Saxo Bank met the riders of Team Saxo-Tinkoff and recorded an intimate video session on the bus just before the race officially began and the bunch rode around the gardens of the palace of Versailles showcasing yet another popular tourist attraction of the host nation.

Saxo Bank had invited its followers on social media to ask questions of anything but cycling and the questions went from favourite TV shows over who's the funniest guy to childhood dreams.

Michael Rogers, Roman Kreuziger, Nicolas Roche, Matteo Tosatto, Daniele Bennati, Sergio Paulinho, Alberto Contador, Jesus Hernandez and Benjamin Noval willingly answered the questions on the day the 100th anniversary edition of the Tour de France came to an end.

The full video is now available here:

Saxo Bank's project presents an unprecedented video portrait of Team Saxo-Tinkoff in ten masterful short films: on the road, in training, preparing to win. On top of that, Saxo Bank added two additional films during the Tour de France featuring Saxo Bank's co-CEOs and founders. The two extra films were added to the project after Saxo Bank secured two prizes at the 34th Annual Telly Awards.
