Special edition luxury merino jersey

The Peace Race Jersey is a special edition piece from Rapha that commemorates one of the greatest sporting events of the 20th century. Little known by fans of cycling today, the Peace Race was born out of an effort to reunite the war-torn countries behind the Iron Curtain. A two-week-long amateur event that first ran in 1948, the Course de la Paix broadcasted the notion that sporting values could promote unity on a continent torn apart by hate, and national teams from around the world were invited to compete on a route through the Eastern Bloc states of Czechoslovakia, East Germany and Poland. Bike racing would bring back together WWII’s winners and losers, in front of crowds of millions, all as part of the reconstruction of a continent. Notwithstanding the political grandstanding that took place around the race, its competitors were genuine couriers of peace, and Rapha pays tribute to them.

The Peace Race Jersey takes its cue from the jerseys awarded to the race’s lead riders. It comes with the same button-on removable arm warmers provided to help the riders stay warm in the spring weather of eastern Europe. Made of a luxury Sportwool™ merino, the jersey has elegant finishing details with wide-ribbed cuffs and hem, and a high, button-up collar for adjustable comfort. Graphics and insignia inspired by the race are also embroidered onto the jersey.

Rapha has also made an original and extremely limited edition Peace Race board game, which can be added to your basket when purchasing the jersey at checkout. It can only be bought with a Peace Race Jersey, and not as a stand-alone product. Conceived and developed by Herbie Sykes, author of The Race Against the Stasi, the board game is a homage to the riders of the race’s 1952 edition. With a graphic design inspired by the rich visual culture that flourished around the race, players are challenged to compete as national team riders on a ‘race’ from Warsaw to Prague, taking in 12 stages on the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable jersey Bought this at the start of the month and used it for an 80+ mile sportive on a cool day. Paired with a long sleeved base layer and a gilet, it was perfect for the ride. Not too hot or cool. The arms are a little on the snug side around the wrists. Plenty of pocket space and the high collar helps keep the chill out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cold weather jersey I have been waiting to wear this and finally got the opportunity today. Ride started in the low 50's. The jersey was extremely comfortable and breathed well as the temperature rose.
