SUNDAY ROADS FOREVER.

 

The Sundays of Spring herald the dawn of the European cycling season. This is no gradual wake up. Far from it. Throughout March and April, brave riders don their new stripes to challenge themselves in thrilling one-day races known as the Spring Classics. Races such as the Strade Bianche, Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix are not competitions defined by marginal gains, watts-per-kilo or stifling tactics. But by bravery, suffering and, very occasionally, a splash of muddy luck.

 

Inspired by the Spring Classics and the gallant heroes who compete in them, comes this Special Edition Euro Collection. Three seminal, one-off jerseys which pay tribute to these magnificent races.

 

Each jersey, in a nod to the era of Merckx and De Vlaeminck, carries a typographical chest panel in hommage to one of the Spring Classics. These special edition Euro Collection jerseys are presented in colourways which evoke the area or country in which the races are held. They are complemented by a commemorative roundel on the rear of jersey, a country flag on the bottom of the rear pockets and a 'MONUMENTS' patch on the right sleeve which identifies the special nature of this Euro Collection jersey.

TOUR OF FLANDERS.

"Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short you feel. But ride." – EDDY MERCKX

PARIS-ROUBAIX.

"It’s bollocks, this race! You’re working like an animal; you don’t have time to piss; you wet your pants. You’re riding in mud like this; you’re slipping. It’s a piece of shit.” – THEO DE ROOY after the 1985 edition of Paris-Roubaix. Then asked whether he would ride it again, he replied: “Sure, it’s the most beautiful race in the world!”

STRADE BIANCHE.

"I love this race because of where it takes place. The extraordinarily hard course, the demanding finale. The women's peloton has few opportunities in the season to race on gravel roads. Roads where you push your boundaries of pain but at the same time enjoy the sensations experienced." – KATARZYNA NIEWIADOMA, 2018 STRADE BIANCHE RUNNER-UP
