The Tour is in full swing and as with any great stage race, there are legends. Riders who have not only conquered the countryside and mountains once, but five or more times. It began in 1962 with Jacques Anquetil, then in 1972, Eddy Merckx, 1982, Bernard Hinault, 1992, Miguel Indurain and in 2002, Lance Armstrong. Rapha’s 5 Decades t-shirts celebrate these men and their accomplishments.
These high quality cotton tees celebrate 50 years, or 5 decades, of trade teams returning to the Tour. Each of the 5 colorways play tribute to the respected team liveries. These shirts are cut slim, with side panels and a dropped tail for a better cycling fit. While they are not jerseys, per se, they do have a back pocket and are quite comfortable.
Each shirt has a unique printed emblem, dates and other details representing each legend. You know, the kind of thing that Rapha is known for… They cost $60 each or $240.00 for all 5 shirts bundled in a limited edition mussette.
