This stripey retro wool jersey by Santini would have looked great on team-leader Lucien Van Impe!
Associated Bike Brand: Pinarello
I really like the use of stripes on this jersey design - it must have really stood out in the european peloton! The 1983 version used much more blue which I also have a really good photo of too, plus I have now listed the Belgian Champion and Italian Champion versions of this kit too!
Whilst 1984 was a good year for jersey design, it was not a good year for team leader Lucien Van Impe. After winning the King of the Mountains (KoM) in the Tour de France the year before, Van Impe didn`t win a single race in `84!
Johan van der Velde did not fair much better, snagging a single stage win (Stage 5a) at the Tour de Romandie that year.
