Racing in the era of legends

1909 was a distinctive time for bike racing. Many riders were as interested in stopping their opponents as they were in making it over the finish line. Riders like Giovanni Gerbi (known as Il Diavolo Rosso, the ‘Red Devil’) would go to any lengths to win. But for every villain there is, invariably, a hero. And Gerbi’s came in the form of Giovanni Cuniolo – known as Manina, or ‘little hand’, because of his fondness for physicality in the sprints.

Manina’s and Gerbi’s rivalry was legendary – brutal and beautiful in equal measure. Their fiercest battle was set for the 1909 Giro di Lombardia, known then as the Criterium d’Autunno, or ‘race of the falling leaves’. Of the 363 starters, Gerbi was destined not to be among them, his schemes this time undone by a bout of flu. And so, despite puncturing at Cappelletta, it was Cuniolo who rode home first.

This classic-style jersey celebrates the 1909 Giro di Lombardia and Cuniolo’s famous victory. Created to mirror Rapha’s Gerbi-inspired Lombardia Jersey of 2012, the jersey is finished in vivid evergreen colours, combining a Breton-style collar, ribbed cuffs and Sportwool™ fabric. Embroidered details recall the race route, along with Manina insignias, and a motif based on the Passo del Ghisallo and Lake Como, integral features of this historic race. This highly collectable jersey is as suited to training rides as it is casual wear.
