Every Jersey has a story – The Kitzhorn

As well as team and non team jerseys, we also sell a few jerseys that are souvenirs from races and challenge events.

One such is the Krone Kitzhorn Challenge Jersey we’ve got for sale at the moment.

Kitzbuhel is probably most famous for its ludicrously scary downhill ski race. There is also a ludicrous hill climb there too.

The climb gains 920 metres in just 7.5 km – an average of 12.5% with the steepest section at 22.3%.

From 1971 to 1995 the event attracted riders such as Lucien Van Impe. In 2005, after a 10 year break the event was re-introduced.

Since 2000 the finish has been used in the Tour of Austria. Stage winners have included Cadel Evans. The record for the climb on the Tour of Austria (a slightly shorter 7.1km and 865m) is 28:24 by Thomas Rohregger.

The jersey is available for sale here.
