To commemorate our journey over the Alps for the L'Etape du Tour in 2022, we have released a special capsule collection calledProject '86.Why '86? The parcours, which will be covered by the peloton a few days later on Bastille Day, is legendary. The Col du Galibier, Col de la Croix de Fer and the mythic Alpe d'Huez, is a replica of the same course which sawGreg Lemond and Bernard Hinaultcross the finish line hand in hand in Stage 18 of the 1986 Tour de France. Teammates, Rivals, Legends. This moment in cycling history cemented LeMond as the first American to win the Tour de France and was a shift in globalising professional cycling.
The design inspiration comes from the Mondrian patterns of the La Vie Claire cycling Team in which both Lemond "L'Americain" and Hinault "Le Blaireau" were Teammates. The Project '86 Jersey is both an homage to the past and an evolution of this timeless style. Take a peak inside the small zip pocket for even more surprises :)
