Raleigh Banana Retro Team Jersey

Size Guide

The Raleigh Banana team was a stalwart of the legendary Kellogg's City Centre series of the 1980s. Continental pros would regularly guest in these races and would routinely be humiliated by the Brit-based experts of this fast and furious racing.

Our retro team jerseys are handmade in our Italian factory using the very best technical fabrics to deliver a classic fit with a consistent stretch to ensure full freedom of movement.

With array of details, including silicone grippers, reflective detailing, and three rear cargo pockets, the Raleigh Banana Jersey is perfect for looking the part at a vintage cycling festival, or just out for an all-day ride in the sunshine.

It may come as a surprise to some but there was a burgeoning UK pro scene over 2 decades ago. The focal point was the legendary Kellogg's City Centre series. It was televised too and was one of the few opportunities to see live cycle racing on the box pre-Eurosport.  The famed marque Raleigh was always strong in this discipline and indeed the formidable Raleigh Banana team even had a replica bike (in fact a choice of two, one budget made from 501 and one pukka team replica in 753).

The team were also highly visible in the Milk Race, the high point in the domestic calendar.  Dave Rayner, Tim Harris, Chris Lillywhite, Adrian Timmis, Dave Mann, Chris Walker and Jonny Clay all rode the prestigious event with sales of Raleigh bikes no doubt benefiting from the team's presence.

Steve Douce was another rider on the team's roster, giving the team valuable publicity during the Winter months thanks to his off-road prowess including winning numerous cyclo-cross events including the national championships.

We would like to publicly thank both Geoff Giddings and Pippa Wibberley of Raleigh UK for their co-operation and invaluable assistance in making this project happen.
