Retro Cycling Jersey Eddy Le Cannibale - REDTED


Cycling Jerseys - Men - REDTED

A replica retro cycling jersey from our exclusive RedTed collection. With the look of the past and the comfort of the present. 

The RedTed Performance retro cycling jerseys have a silicone grip at the back and an elastic band with a grip at the front. Together with the elastic band at the (somewhat longer) sleeve, this ensures the jersey stays perfectly in place while cycling. The fabric is 100% polyester with a micro-hole ball pattern (breathable and lightweight).

These cycling jerseys are aerodynamic - so 'slim fit'; just a bit more tailored than the standard Retro Cycling jerseys. Because of the flatlock stitching, the jersey is sturdy and the seams do not irritate. The cycling jerseys are finished with a hidden long YKK heavy duty zip and have 3 large back pockets which are closed with an elastic band. The RedTed Performance cycling jerseys are available in 8 sizes, from S till 5XL.

ATTENTION: 'Italian' sizing and 'slim fit' so be sure to choose one size bigger than your usual European dress size. CHECK OUT THE SIZING TABLE.

Retro Cycling Jersey Eddy Le Cannibale - REDTED

Born June 17, 1945, in the Belgian town of Meensel-Kiezegem in Flemish Brabant, he became the best cyclist of all time - cycling myth Eddy Merckx.

Eddy had it all: class, strength, temperament, professionalism and the looks of a movie star. In honor of Baron Merckx, RedTed released the cycling jersey "Le Cannibale. One stunning cycling jersey constructed from Eddy's cycling teams; Solo Superia 1965 | Peugeot 1966-1967 | FAEMA 1968-1970 | Molteni 1971-1976 | FIAT 1977 | C&A 1978. Ride like 'Le Cannibale' in a colorful cycling shirt consisting of 17 years of cycling glory.

Solo Superia Wielerteam - 1965Cycling teams Eddy Merckx - 1965 - 1978

Eddy was a cyclist, time trialist, climber and sprinter. In short, he went for everything: grand and small stage tours, world championships, the classics, world records. Eddy won everything, or rather, he let the others win almost nothing, he ate them with skin and hair, he turned out to be a "cannibal. In total, he won no less than 525 races in his career, including 32 classics, such as Milan-San Remo seven times. And 11 grand tours; five times the Giro D'Italia, five times the Tour de France, once the Vuelta and in addition 4 times world titles. Merckxissimo!

Other great cyclists like Luis Ocaña, Felice Gimondi and Joop Zoetemelk suffered from the great "cannibal," he did not give away presents and left only the scraps.
After Merckx became world amateur champion in 1964, he made the step - not yet 20 years old - to professional cycling. His debut was on April 29, 1965 in the beautiful red cycling shirt of Solo-Superia in the prestigious classic of the Waalse Pijl. He had to drop out there, but later put this classic on his palmares no less than 3 times (1967, 1970, 1972). Because of the rivalry with leader Rik van Looy, Eddy wore the black and white Peugeot-BP cycling shirt around his shoulders after only one year. In 1966 he won his first major classic Milan-San Remo in this shirt, they would see him win 6 more times thereafter. And also won his first world title. In 1968, Merckx made the switch to the red and white colors of the Italian cycling team Faema. With Faema he won his first Giro d'Italia, he would go on to win four more, according to Eddy actually 5, the 1969 Giro d'Italia was in his opinion unfairly taken out of the race because of doping. In 1969 the Faema team became more attuned to Eddy, a very successful year followed. Victories in a number of classics, the Giro and to top it off, his first Tour de France. From 1971 to 1976, Eddy Merckx rode in the orange of the Italian salami manufacturer Molteni. With the orange cycling jersey around his shoulders, he achieved numerous victories;
