Retro Cycling Jersey Tricolore French Champion - REDTED

€59,50

A replica retro cycling jersey from our exclusive RedTed collection. With the look of the past and the comfort of the present. 

The RedTed Performance retro cycling jerseys have a silicone grip at the back and an elastic band with a grip at the front. Together with the elastic band at the (somewhat longer) sleeve, this ensures the jersey stays perfectly in place while cycling. The fabric is 100% polyester with a micro-hole ball pattern (breathable and lightweight).

These cycling jerseys are aerodynamic - so 'slim fit'; just a bit more tailored than the standard Retro Cycling jerseys. Because of the flatlock stitching, the jersey is sturdy and the seams do not irritate. The cycling jerseys are finished with a hidden long YKK heavy duty zip and have 3 large back pockets which are closed with an elastic band. The RedTed Performance cycling jerseys are available in 8 sizes, from S till 5XL.

ATTENTION: 'Italian' sizing and 'slim fit' so be sure to choose one size bigger than your usual European dress size. CHECK OUT THE SIZING TABLE.

Retro Cycling Jersey Tricolore French Champion - 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!
