Description

Blue with cold

Despite running in early June, the snow-struck 14th stage of the 1988 Giro saw some of the toughest weather conditions the race has ever faced. While his rivals floundered in the flurries, seized by the cold, Andy Hampsten forged ahead, ploughing onwards through the freshly laid snow. Bundled up against the cold, he wore a ski jacket under the blue combination classification jersey. Pedalling while braking to generate heat, he maintained the gap to his GC rivals on the long, glacial descent into Bormio where he swapped blue for the pink of race leader.

The Gavia Jersey takes inspiration from Hampsten’s superb ride, combining authentic design touches with modern fabrics and functionality. Made of Rapha’s proprietary Rapha Performance Merino fabric, the jersey features a chain stitched trico panel with a Gavia ‘88 logo on the chest. Further commemorative patches, embroidery and flocked graphics feature on the sleeves and the rear pockets. An authentic quarter-length silver plated zip reveals pink highlights on the placket and the neck line commemorating the day that saw Hampsten ride into the Giro’s pink jersey.
