Product Description

Already fabled by notoriety, the year of 1951 saw the introduction of Mont Ventoux to the Tour de France. Prior known throughout France for it's severity, whether biking, hiking, or racing a car up it's slopes the Tour de France organisers included this mighty climb within the route for the first time as a way to inject even more intrigue and fascination in to the race.

Tackling the climb from the lesser famous, but no less difficult northern side, Ventoux was suitably baptised within this first ascent by legendary riders such as Hugo Koblet, Raphaël Géminiani, Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. Hugo Koblet, the wearer of the "Maillot Jaune" and eventually winner of this years Tour, limited his losses on the climb due to derailleur problems, as a breakaway of leading riders formed up ahead of him. He eventually rejoined on the descent and subsequent run in to Avignon to preserve his hold on the General Classification.

Ever since this first introduction, drama seems to always arrive when the Ventoux is on the Tour parcours. From the fascinating Armstrong/Pantani duel in 2000, to the harrowing and saddening demise of Tom Simpson on it's slopes in '67, to Froome's comical "run like your Auntie, handbag and all" performance in 2016, Mont Ventoux will always find a way of providing a spectacle, further fuelling it's legend in the process.

Our "Mont Ventoux" sweatshirt features a traditional flock print that is designed and produced here in our "Printworks". This print has a raised, flocked finish that pays homage to felt appliquéd logos that appeared on vintage team jerseys, offering a subtle "tip of the cap" to heritage cycling style.  The sweatshirt, with a plush, 290g material weight is manufactured from 100% recycled material with its melange heather finish being complemented by extended, ribbed, cuffs and hem, ribbed collar and raglan sleeves for a classic aesthetic.
