Long sleeves for year-round comfort

This is a new long sleeve version of our popular Pro Team Short Sleeve and Sleeveless Base Layers, offering racing performance in mild to cold conditions. Wear this base layer under your jersey or jacket, and the open mesh body fabric will provide warmth, breathability and moisture transfer, while the stretch side panels ensure a close, Pro Team fit. Two new slogans are included on the front of the base layer: ‘QUÄL DICH, DU SAU!’ on the white version and ‘PÉDALER EN DANSEUSE’ on the black version. The former, meaning ‘torture yourself, you pig!’ in German, was shouted by Telekom rider Udo Bölts to Jan Ullrich during the 1997 Tour in an effort to draw the last ounces of strength from his fading team captain. The latter, meaning ‘to dance on the pedals’ in French, is an expression used to celebrate the style of riders able to make climbing look easy.

NB: The Pro Team Base Layer sizing is race-tight. Please select your regular jersey size or, if you want a more relaxed fit, move up one size.
