After the phenomenal success of our Yorkshire jersey we’ve had one or two requests from our friends on the other side of the Pennines asking when we are going to produce a Lancashire jersey.
Well the answer is we’ve now got some !
As fans of classic cycling history will know our Yorkshire jersey is an unashamed nod to one of the greatest cyclists – Eddy Merckx and his Molteni team. One of Merckx’s biggest Flemish rivals (among with quite a few others) back in the seventies was Freddy Maertens of the Flandria team. Maertens was one of the best sprinters in the world during his era winning three green jerseys in the Tour, the Vuelta in 1977 and the World Championships in 1976 and 1981. Maertens rode for the Flandria team so it seemed appropriate that we designed our Lancashire jersey around that.
Manufactured to our design by an Italian private label company who also make team kits and skinsuits for five of the teams that are riding this years Tour plus various big name cycling aparrel companies, the jersey is made from an anti-bacterial fabric and features a quarter length zip.
Our initial batch of fifty jerseys will be in UK sizes ranging from small to XL.
We’re sure that they will be a big a hit on the other side of the Pennines as our Yorkshire jersey has been.
