The most coveted jersey in cycling: The UCI World Champion Rainbow Stripes Jersey made in Italy by Santini. From the bottom up the colours are: green, yellow, black, red and blue; the same colours that appear in the rings on the Olympic flag and the colours that only the best rider can dress. A truly special collaboration between Santini and the Unione Cycliste Internationale that began in 1988, the same year in which Maurizio Fondriest became World Champion. A collaboration that has made an undeniable mark on the history of cycling.
The Giro d’Italia has had an incredibly rich history since it’s inception the early 1900’s, and Santini has become inexorably linked to the ‘Pink Race’. Santini has produced the leader jerseys for Italy’s Grand Tour for over twenty years, including the Maglia Rosa general classification leader jersey, a true icon of a proudly Italian cycling race.
With it’s ever increasing importance on the World Tour calendar, La Vuelta is quickly becoming cycling’s most exciting race for both it’s spectacle and for the caliber of riders that participate.

L’Eroica was born as a celebration of road cycling, of the history and values of this sport. “We want people to rediscover the beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest” These are the words of the Eroica Founder Giancarlo Brocci.
