There are days I don’t want to go particualy fast and arrive to coffee with a smile rather than a salted face and empty bidon. That day, I want to wear this jersey and look like a cycling hero. Slightly slower, slightly more beautiful and spinning the gears of the gods- all high.
Raphaël Géminiani was A magician on two wheels in the 1950s professional peloton. He was my uncle’s hero. My uncle introduced me to cycling. So our early spins in the Spring of 1985- had the soundtrack of Géminiani exploits pedalling my 5 gears. I wanted to be Raphaël. The cycling uncle, dressed me in one of his old cycling jerseys from 1951 in these tours. A red, much-too-big garment with a white stripe and world champions bands adorning the collar. I was Géminiani in that jersey. He wore a sublime jersey with key elements of this garment.This is our recreation of timeless cycling style:- those fantastic cycling years 1951, 1985 and 2019.
