Castelli and Human Race team up to launch 2018 sportive jerseys
New jersey inspired by the famous hills of the Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales by Le Tour de France
Launch of an exciting new partnership; the oldest and most revolutionary cycling clothing designers in the world, and the organisers of the UK’s premier sportive events.
Castelli will be designing the jerseys for the entire Human Race cycling portfolio, including:
The Saddleback Fred Whitton Challenge
Chiltern 100 Cycling Festival
Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Ride
L’Etape London by Le Tour de France.
The full range will be launched in the New Year.
The 2018 Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales jersey is available now and features a design inspired by the iconic ‘Dragon’ motif and the challenging climbs of the routes that riders will be tackling on 10 June 2018.
Nick Rusling, CEO at Human Race, says; “This is a seriously exciting new partnership pairing our series of original UK sportive events, with the world’s original jersey designer. This relationship perfectly reflects the quality and prestige of the events that we deliver.”
Castelli Servizio Corse Designer - UK, Darren Gumm, says; “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to design a range of jerseys that appeal specifically to the sportive rider. We are creating designs that are a badge of honour for these significant achievements, and items of clothing that riders will enjoy wearing on regular rides.”
Darren continues; “The concept for this jersey was to combine the mystery of the Welsh hills, with the legend of the Tour de France. The gradient lines in the design are taken directly from the most iconic climbs that the Dragon Riders will encounter. We hope this jersey gives people courage to tackle the toughest one-day ride – they’ll need it!”
