Koblet Suisse Merino Wool Cycling Jersey

Koblet Suisse Merino Wool Cycling Jersey
Hugo Koblet (1925 - 1964)

28 Swiss riders have won Tour de France stages, including Tony Rominger and Fabian Cancellara; and Alex Zülle won two Vueltas and came second in the Tour De France twice.

But the most popular Swiss rider of all would have to have been Hugo Koblet. He won the Giro d' Italia in 1950, the Tour de France the following year, and won the Swiss track pursuit championship ever year from 1947 to 1954. In total he won 70 races as a professional.

A handsome rider in both looks and style, Koblet was nicknamed "pedaleur de charme". English cycling journalist Jock Wadley wrote that he was "the most charming of men to talk to", and Rene de Latour wrote in Sporting Cyclist that "Koblet had not an enemy at all. His ready and kindly smile came from deep down inside, and one knows from the start that this is a man without rancour."

The latter parts of Koblet’s life were more difficult, with debts and a broken marriage, but we pay homage to him with our Swiss themed Koblet jersey.

    I love my Soigneur Jersey. It covers such a wide range of conditions from summer to winter. It's massively reduced the number of extra layers I need to wear when it is cold and the best thing I find is that in summer when it rains and cools off a little I no longer need to sweat inside a waterproof as the jersey just keeps the warmth in during and after the rain.
