World Cup Merino Polo
A MERINO polo top designed in the classic style of 1930's cycling jerseys.
Inspired by the legendary World Champions rainbow jersey is the distinctive jersey worn by the reigning World Champion in a cycling discipline, since 1927. The 'curse of the rainbow jersey' is a popular term to refer to the phenomenon where cyclists who have become World Champion often suffer from poor luck the next year – though, in some cases, the 'bad luck' was brought on by their own actions. The 1981 winner, Freddy Maertens of Belgium, also won the Green Jersey in the 1981 Tour De France, but in 1982 won no races, and only won a further two races in his professional cycling career.
The 1987 winner, Irishman Stephen Roche, who had won the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia in the same season, had a disastrous following year, missing nearly the entire season with a knee injury.
Slim Italian cut makes it functional on the bike for classic rides as well as sipping premium spirits at the distillery or exploring a new town you've just spent hours riding around.
