Retro cycling jersey French Champion Tricolore - REDTED
Since 1907, the French Champion on the road wears the tricolour jersey (blue, white and red). The French champion can wear this jersey from the start of the race until the next championship. This characteristic tricolour jersey has existed since the beginning of the French Championship on the road.
The first rider to win this jersey was Gustave Garrigou in 1907. After him, many famous cyclists wore this jersey. Jean Stablinski wore the champion's jersey no less than four times (1960-1962-1963-1964). Also Octave Lapize (1911-1912-1913) , Francis Pélissier (1921-1923-1924), Georges Speicher (1935-1937-1939) and Arnaud Démare (2014-2017-2020) won this jersey three times. Other great French riders who wore the Tricolore include Bernard Thévenet (1973), Laurent Fignon (1984) and Bernard Hinault (1978).
But the most remarkable achievement can be attributed to Jeannie Longo: she managed to win the iconic tricolour jersey no less than 20 times on the road race! The first time was in 1979 and the last time was in 2008. An outstanding achievement!
You don't have to be a champion to feel like one. We offer the classic French tricolore in a modern comfort by RedTed. With this jersey on your shoulders cycling seems to go a lot smoother!
RedTed Performance Cycling Jerseys
The RedTed cycling jersey has an aerodynamic cut (so it's a bit tighter), a high quality YKK zip, a wide elastic band at the end of the slightly longer sleeves, a silicone band at the bottom with an extra wide elastic band at the front, and a long front zip (also available in short). A performance jersey for a great price.
RedTed Performance Cycling Shorts
The RedTed Performance cycling shorts have a perfect fit and are very comfortable. The shorts are made of different layers. The first layer is a comfortable and breathable fabric (Lycra) that can be worn directly on the skin. The chamois of RedTed Performance is widened so that irritation in the groin area is less likely. The second layer is an elastic shock absorbing silicone pad with laser perforation and gutters for sweat dispersion. The third layer is, again, a breathable fabric. The shorts are extremely comfortable and have good freedom of movement. At the end of the shorts is a wide elastic band, which is equipped with silicone grip. Thanks to this and the suspender straps, the bib shorts stay perfectly in place.
Please note! Size is smaller and has an aerodynamic cut (fitted). Choose one size bigger than your standard clothing size. View size chart for measurements.
You can also order the cycling short and cycling jersey separately!
