‘The day the big men cried’
So the snow-struck 14th stage of the 1988 Giro came to be known. While his rivals floundered in the flurries of snow, seized by the cold, Hampsten, seemingly impervious to the conditions, forged ahead and into the pink jersey at the finish in Bormio.
Without the luxury of a winter hat, Andy’s mop of blonde hair resembled a snowball by the time he crested the summit. To keep your head warm while on cold winter rides, the limited edition Gavia Winter Hat combines a waterproof fabric on the front panel and brim with a warm merino fabric at the rear. Embroidered logos on the front and side of the hat celebrate an iconic ride while an embroidered Rapha logo features on the underside of the brim.
