The TI Raleigh team jersey must be one of the most iconic designs of all time; the sheer simplicity and bold design makes it unmistakable!
Associated Bike Brand: Raleigh Bicycles
Races: Paris Roubaix
When I was a lad, my first brand new "proper" bike was a Raleigh (a Raleigh Grifter if you must know), and I`m sure I`m not alone. Long before cycling was popular in the UK, Raleigh was a household name and I assume their sponsorship of the mightly TI Raleigh team was to break the brand into Europe.
As part of Raleigh`s 125 year anniversary, they produced a stunning coffee table book that dedicated many of the pages to the period of time when the TI Raleigh Team was at the height of it`s powers with team manager Peter Post at the wheel.
Thanks to Prendas Ciclismo in England who submitted this original wool team jersey by Santini (BG) of Italy. Prendas now sell an accurate replica of the TI Raleigh jersey in modern fabrics along a matching TI Raleigh cotton cap.
