Special edition jersey dedicated to an iconic rider
In her heyday, Connie Carpenter was the dominant force in women's cycling. With 12 national championships, world championship medals and an Olympic medal, Carpenter is one of the most successful women to ever compete. This special edition Sportwool™ jersey is inspired by her many years in the stars and stripes of the American national championship jersey.
Sportwool™ is comfortable, breathable and insulating, making this a highly versatile jersey. It features a full-length zip with zip guard, tone-on-tone Rapha armstripe, and reflective front stripes and rear pocket detail.
Connie Carpenter's husband and fellow Olympian, Davis Phinney, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1999. Together, they established the Phinney Foundation to provide information, investment, and encouragement for others affected by the disease. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the Connie Carpenter Long Sleeve Jersey will go to the Phinney Foundation.

Please note that 10% of the profit from each jersey will go directly to the Davis Phinney Foundation.
"When Davis was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, at the age of 40, he made the decision to focus not on adversity or the steep climb that lay before him but, rather, to formulate a new plan of attack. Part of that plan was to help others living with Parkinson’s to experience what he has throughout his life and career: namely, the power of setting a goal, expecting a positive outcome and fighting for victory. Rapha’s generous donation via the sale of the Connie Carpenter and Davis Phinney jerseys will help fund Davis Phinney Foundation programs, resources and research that will, in turn, help people with Parkinson’s to live well and make every victory count."
-Polly Dawkins, Executive Director of the Davis Phinney Foundation
