Cycling jerseys are amazing. Emblematic for the sponsors and fans alike. The jersey is an important representative statement. I've included a favorite from the past and present. I think of the past quite often, the cycling past that is and I enjoy cycling jerseys. Mainly made as an promotional piece for the sponsors. It's a human powered advertising billboard. I've discovered an interesting site with historical team jerseys. Candid and revealing photos on cycling heroes & non-heroes mainly relaxed before racing. Do have a look...
The French classic in action at the 1983 Giro d'Italia.
Britian's Graham Jones on his way in his first Giro finishing a fantastic 26th overall!
From: 'Tour 83.'
Wolber was a French cycling team from 1980-83 with many fine riders such as Dominque Arnaud, Jean Rene Bernadeau, Graham Jones, Marc Gomez... Sponsored by Wolber tyres & Puma clothing and shoes, the jersey is simplicity at it's best. I love that orange with the bold black stripe and the 'Wolber' script!
The new: Colors of the Vuelta, part 2:
Now, here's three jersey's from the Vuelta. Hope I get this right. From what I can see the roja(red) is the sprinter's points jersey, the blue is the neo-pro(best young rider)? And the white is the best all-rounder. Missing is the mountain and the Jersey de Oro.
A peek at some of the coveted jersey's at the Vuelta a España.
