The Il Giro 2013 Short Sleeve Jersey, by Telegraph Road, celebrates cyclingâ€™s second oldest Grand Tour, The Giro Dâ€™Italia. This new 2013 edition of one of their most popular designs and echoes more closely than ever the the race leader's Maglia Rosa â€“ which is in turn 'un omaggio' to the pink Gazetta dello Sport newspaper that first sponsored the ride in 1909. The contrasting red and green bands on either side of the central panel carry the names of every winner. With a varied route but always ending in Milan, the Giro snakes through Dolomite climbs that are more brutal than those of even the Tour de France. And any Italian winner is guaranteed immortality among the tifosi, the passionate followers of the race. Held just a few weeks before The Tour, in 100 years, only seven riders have managed to win both. Could Sir Bradley Wiggins be number eight?
