Description

When 22-year-old Franco Balmamion won the 1962 Giro, a consensus emerged that he’d been lucky. However, headed into the final Dolomite stage of the 1963 edition, his ‘luck’ had held once again. Working smarter not harder than his rivals, Balmamion rode to a second title and into cycling immortality. Made with merino wool and designed for all-round road riding, this luxurious long sleeve jersey celebrates Balmamion’s title defence with chain stitched and embroidered details. A pink stripe on the ribbed collar honours the Giro, while the quarter zip allows for added ventilation. Three button-up rear pockets are adorned with Franco’s finishing time, above which the percorso is chain stitched on top an embossed ‘63 detail. ‘Bianco e Nero’ lettering on the right sleeve is a nod to Balmamion’s Torinese team, while his nickname ‘The Eagle of Canavese’ is emblazoned proudly across the chest. As a final flourish, Franco’s initials are stitched onto the chest, a final reminder of a once forgotten Giro champion.
