Giro d’Italia 2014 jerseys revealed


The official jerseys for the 2014 Giro d’Italia have been unveiled, with designs that pay homage to Ireland, the host country for the start of this year’s race.

Starting in CRC’s home city of Belfast, the Giro d’Italia will take place from 9th May – 1st June, and will see the world’s greatest riders not only take on the same roads that many of our team cycle on, but ride past our offices too! [we were at the launch - read about it here]

Created by Irish designer Fergus Niland on behalf of Santini SMS who will make them, the jerseys feature typically Irish graphics, such as a tweed pattern and a stylised shamrock symbol. Oxfam is the charity partner for this year’s event, a connection which is displayed on the left sleeve.
