The order of progress
While not a country with great cycling heritage, Brazil still has its own success stories. Young Anésio Argenton, a poor country boy from Sao Paulo state, was so determined to represent his country at Melbourne in 1956 that he stowed away on post office airplanes for a week to make the journey Down Under. It was worth it as Argenton came home with two top-ten finishes in the velodrome – still his country’s best ride on the track. This Brazil Super Lightweight Jersey is designed for riding in the heat. The sleeve design is inspired from the wavy patterning found along Copacabana beach. Made from three synthetic technical fabrics developed exclusively for Rapha, the jersey’s main body material is comfortable against the skin as you perspire and also fast drying. Mesh side panels add more breathability and soft cuffs and collar maintain comfort.
