For refreshment and celebration

Raids were an occupational hazard of the café owners and landlords who had the misfortune to run an establishment on the race’s route. Domestiques would flood the bar area, leaving only when their jerseys and hands were filled with bottles of water or something stronger. Back on the parcours, the domestiques would serve their stolen wares to the leaders – and the race organiser would receive the tab.

Cut from tempered Sheffield steel and laser-etched with Kings of Pain hallmarks, this Bottle Opener pays tributes to the water carriers of the peloton.
