One of our all-time favourite cycling photographs is of a very wet finish of the 1989 World Championships that were held on a very tough circuit in Chambéry, France.
One of the last championships to be held in August, Greg Lemond was crowned a worthy World Champion completing the rare Tour de France/Worlds double.
The design features a silhouette of the Greg Lemond (USA), Dimitri Konyshev (USSR), Sean Kelly (IRL) and Steven Rooks (NED) sprinting for the honour of wearing the rainbow jersey for the following year.
The colourful diamonds represent the colours of those riders plus of France's Thierry Claveyrolat and Laurent Fignon.
Whilst the inspiration for the design is firmly set in the past, the garment itself is made using the very latest fabrics and techniques by Santini in Italy. The jersey is breathable and lightweight with raw-cut Bodyfit fabric on sleeves plus a long covered zipper on the front for ventilation and a silicone gripper on the jersey hem to prevent movement.
