    An age-old trick of wily racers

    For years riders racing in the mountains have stuffed newspapers down the front of their jerseys at the summit of climbs in order to conserve body heat on the descent. Had any fans dared to brave the snow atop the Passo di Gavia in the 1988 Giro, Andy Hampsten would gladly have taken a newspaper from them to help him stay warm on the long, cold descent into Bormio.

    This limited edition version of the Pro Team Base Layer commemorates Hampsten’s brave ride en route to winning that year’s Giro with a unique print design featuring the pages of the following morning’s Gazzetta dello Sport. Having ridden into the leader’s pink jersey at the finish in Bormio, the headlines heralded Hampsten’s mountain masterclass.

    Just as the Gazzetta is printed on pink pages, the design is printed onto a pink fabric which is light and breathable with a high degree of stretch for an excellent fit. By wicking sweat quickly away from the skin, the base layer improves temperature regulation while low-profile seams – both flatlock and bonded - are used throughout to reduce irritation. Antibacterial treatment is applied to the fabric to keep it feeling fresh even on long rides.
