The new jerseys for the 2014 Giro d’Italia were unveiled during a fashion event in Florence today – by the Giro’s charity partner – Oxfam.
The jerseys for the 97th Edition were created by the Irish designer Fergus Niland on behalf of the Italian apparel company – Santini SMS. As a result, the jerseys will feature a stylized shamrock as symbol.
Sponsors for this year’s jerseys are as follows:
MAGLIA ROSA – BALOCCO: For the second consecutive year Balocco will be the Maglia Rosa sponsor, symbol of the General Classification leader and a cycling icon around the world.
MAGLIA AZZURRA – BANCA MEDIOLANUM: The leader of this special classification, dedicated to the King of the Mountain, will wear the Maglia Azzurra Banca Mediolanum, a jersey which has the same sky colour as where the great Giro mountains stand supreme.
MAGLIA ROSSA – ALGIDA: In 2014 Algida is a proud partner of the Giro d’Italia, and brings the vortex of their cream heart on the Maglia Rossa as symbol of the Points Classification.
MAGLIA BIANCA – F.LLI ORSERO: This jersey represents the Youg Rider General Classification, symbolising freshness and novelty and embodying the F.lli Orsero fruit qualities.
