Pro Team jersey in cult Eighties trade team colours

Trade Team - View the feature »

The 1980s was the decade modern road racing arrived. It began with a French team, sponsored by a state-owned company and which would make France’s greatest race its own, notching six yellow jerseys in its seven years of existence, the striking black-and-yellow kit merely added to the team’s star quality. By the middle years, however, a more egalitarian French team represented the globalisation of the sport, with young American riders making an impact in the biggest races. In the second half of the decade, the first British trade team took its place at the world’s greatest race. From the opening TT things went against them; riders began to drop out, and it was a skeleton outfit that arrived in Paris. And yet the UK’s faltering journey, from clueless ingénues of the Continental scene to the grand successes of the 21st century, had begun.

The 2015 Rapha Trade Team Jersey has a streamlined, race fit, with a design based on one of these three cult liveries. Constructed from the same block and fabric as the Rapha Pro Team Jersey, it is breathable and lightweight, and features a three-pocket layout with a valuables compartment.

Body sizing

Arm length: measure from where the seam would start at shoulder to bottom of the wrist.

What does GiBi stand for? What's the back view like?  What's the actual garment chest measurement for Small size and how stretchable is it?

Asked by: GeBee
Hi, GIbi was the nickname of Giambattista Baronchelli, who pushed Merckx all the way in the 1974 Giro d'Italia. The back is quite a simple design with Gibi's number in the race that year; 132, embossed on the central rear pocket. The Jersey is a sportwool material and has a fair degree of stretch, similar to that of our Classic or Club Jerseys. We would recommend you choose the same size as you would in these jerseys.
