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 Classic! A beautiful garment, size normal (neither large nor small, but tight on the arms - I wear M in all my regular clothes and chose M in this as well).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give me WOOL A sumptuous and adaptable jersey that is not of an obvious provenance. Like my all time favourite Lombardia jersey, it gets neatly folded and stored with my woollen jumpers, not just stuffed in the "lycra jersey draw". The buttons on the sleeves work so well, and increase the jersey's useable range of weather conditions. Why isn't this a more common thing? They don't slip or look baggy like most of my other arm warmers. The collar is soft and reassuring, and just the right height to keep out the cold air. The buttons on the collar are a bit fiddly to fasten, but like putting on a tie, its best to go by feel and not look in the mirror! When pulling on the jersey, the cuffs on the sleeves initially seemed a little tight, and maybe the collar needs another button to open a little wider. But once underway, the jersey is super comfortable. There's ample storage space in the pockets, and the colour is stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vintage Luxury! Growing up in the former Czechoslovakia, the Peace Race was the Tour de France of Eastern Europe. I can not think of another product that represents and commemorates its champions better than the Rapha Peace Race Jersey. The level of detail that has gone into this item is truly impressive. From the supple feel of merino wool, to its practical yet unique design, this jersey is made for the cycling connoisseur.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Merino This jersey has been a real head turner round town. It's very comfortable with a truly unique style (some may say a little too Star Treky). I'm really happy with it.
