    30th July, 2018   GRAND TOUR BLOG GIROGiro d'Italia This year (4th May, 2018), for the first time ever - a Grand Tour will start outside of Europe!  It's the 13th time that the Giro starts outside of Italy; Israel has the honour of hosting the first 3 stages, kicking things off in Jerusalem with a time trial.  As usual, the race will consist of 21 stages: 2 individual time trials, 7 sprints, 6 medium difficulty stages and 6 high difficulty stages.  The total distance covered will be 3,546.2KM (2203.5 miles), which is approx. 168.9KM  (105 miles) a day, OUCH.  There's a nice little change for the final stage, as riders will entre beautiful Rome, an opportunity that these riders have likely never done before. With four tours and one Vuelta Espana under his belt , Froome is now the first British rider to win the Giro d'Italia; also making him the second rider to have won all three Grand Tours  AND  the third rider to win them all in one year! Get full details of each stage here.     GRAND TOUR BLOGTour de France As usual, this incredibly famous event will take place throughout the whole of July - beginning 07.07.18  until 23rd.  The 105th edition of the tour will consist of 21 stages and cover a total riding distance of approx. 3,329km.  There's 9 new locations visited fir the first time this year.

This year, the race includes 25 mountain climbs and the cobbles return during the 9th stage in Arras, Roubaix. The last curve ball is that after a 3 year absence, a TTT is back on the cards as early as stage 3. With Lance Armstrong (stripped of his 7 TDF wins), he stated that if Chris Froome races the Tour this year he'll face a 'nightmare' - after experience on the unclear end of a doping accusation.   The  four-time title winner of the TDF is still the bookies odds to win!  The record number of titles held is five, held by Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain. Four-time leading champion Froome, completed the podium this year, but not as expected...  Geraint Thomas stepped in to this years spotlight; after the individual time trial stage, he gained 1m51s over Tom Dumoulin.

SPAIN JERSEY VISUALVuelta a Espana Beginning on August 25th, the 73rd edition of this Spanish La Vuelta  will begin in Malaga - the second time since 1936  and there's no better way to start than an ITT right?!  The rumours are circulating, but the finalised route/ stage details are yet TBC this month.  Looking ahead though, there's rumours of the 2020 edition already!  Will the Vuelta go back to the future in the Netherlands...       Simon Yates won the 73rd edition of the Vuelta a Espana ahead of Enric Mas and Miguel Lopez - making this the first time, all grand tours in a season have been won by British Riders.

  6. Tour de Yorkshire

    Tour de Yorkshire

    Backup_of_Tour de Yorkshire 2 FR Tour De Yorkshire FR   We noticed a lot of you are desperate for a Yorkshire cycling jersey so we've come to the rescue and done what we do best - design a cycle jersey!!  If you're doing the Maserati tour de Yorkshire ride at the end of the month, there's still time to get one from our website. The 3rd edition of this famous Tour de Yorkshire will commence in just 10 days! Accumulating a total of 304 miles over 3 stages (1 a day) and this year, riders get to experience all 4 corners of the county - including previous Tour de France routes.  With teams and riders announced, you can expect a spectating audience of approximately 2 million people. Here's how it works: Stage 1: 173 km, 3 climbs and 2 sprints Beginning at Bridlington Spa, riders will head to Poklington for the first of the stages intense sprint.  And if that wasn't hard enough, it's straight into the first 2 King of the Mountain climbs (Cote de Garrowby Hill & Cote de Goathland), before a 'leisurely' coastal pedal to recuperate the legs before 1 more wee climb, into the final sprint into Scarborough for the legendary finish along the North Bay. Stage 2: 122.5km, 1 climb and 2 sprints Slightly less gruelling than stage 1, but don't let your guard down!  Men and women will face the exact same stage - starting in Tadcaster.  The first sprint is up for grabs at Knaresborough.  The only climb of the stage takes place on Cote de Lofthouse, leading to Ripon for the last stage sprint; which leads to Harrogate (Parliament Street), where all the action will happen. Stage 3: 194.5km, 8 climns and 2 sprints. Aw mann, this hurts to read, never mind tackling it!  The start line briefly joins the 2014 Tour de France route at Burley -in -Wharfedale before heading into the famous Yorkshire Dales. The first of 8 climbs begins in the town of Skipton, second on the cobbled terrain up Haworth's main street - leading to climbs 3 and 4 taking them to Cote de Shibden Wall.  This will certainly crack the initial foundation of the rider peloton, so there's one last sprint before a torturous 22km of constant climbs - eventually finishing at Fox Valley.

ABOUT TCJ

High quality digital printing technology has evolved over the years and we have the facility to utilise it to the max. So we use it unlike most others! Initially to produce our own cycle jerseys, mainly for races, enduros and just plain fun. Most of all we just wanted something different to wear on the trails that subtly whispered our likes and dislikes, our joy of the sport and desire to be creative with it.

Trouble is, we kept getting nagged for jerseys from friends and fellow riders......It didn't take much of that to realise there was a demand for these quirky and limited edition designs we were wearing, so it began to dawn on us that we should go for it. Go large. Thanks to the help and encouragement from the fine companies you see in the following pages, we finally got ourself together and brought our designs to the public at large - and created TheCycleJersey.com ...Read More
