To celebrate Team Sky’s participation in this year’s Tour of Britain, which starts on Sunday, Rapha has issued a special edition jersey to underscore the team’s hopes for victory.
Team Sky’s, Ian Stannard, who is shown modeling the jersey, had this to say about the Tour:
“I think the organisers have really stepped up their game this year,” he says. “It’s a really challenging route with some pretty long days over 200km. I’m looking forward to Stage 6, from Stoke-on-Trent to Nottingham, which goes over the climbs of the Peak District where I train.”
