    A forgotten race between iconic Italian cities. Two editions, twelve years apart, both won by the same rider: Milano-Roma. Rapha celebrates the best bike race you've never heard of with this luxurious special collection.

    TWO CITIES

    Milano-Roma pitted intrepid riders, both professional and amateur, against one another on a challenging parcours between two of Italy’s great cities. Our eponymous collection incorporates a striking two-tone colour palette reminiscent of the unique aesthetic of both cities.

    TWO STAGES

    Typical of bicycle races in the early 20th century, the Milano-Roma featured arduously long stages. The 666-kilometre route between Milan and Rome was contested in just two, taking in iconic cities such as Florence and Bologna as well as two mountain passes en route.

    TWO EDITIONS

    Run only twice, in 1906 and 1918, Milano-Roma was dominated by one man. Italian Carlo Galetti clinched victory in the general classification of both editions despite the twelve years and devastating period of war that separated them.

    Milano-Roma Jersey with Arm Warmers

    Made of merino wool, the Milano-Roma Jersey would not have looked out of place on the start line in Milan a century ago. Similar in fit and feel to our Classic Jersey II, this limited edition incorporates a raft of beautiful design details and comes complete with a set of ribbed woolen arm warmers.

    Milano-Roma Merino Wool Roll Neck

    By the time the 1918 edition of the race had concluded, the prevailing art movements of the period – futurism and cubism – had profused from Paris across Europe. They were a major design inspiration for our collection and manifest themselves in the triangular knitted design and button-down chest pocket on the Wool Roll Neck.

    MERINO WOOL TRACK JACKET

    Drawing inspiration from the square-knitted track jackets worn at the time, this modern replica is fit for likes of Galetti and his contemporaries. The jacket features a dropped shoulder seam as well as chain stitched logos with a striking typeface that takes its design cues from the futurist and cubist art movements of the period.

    MERINO T-SHIRT
