Bartali Merino Wool Cycling Jersey

Bartali Merino Wool Cycling Jersey
Gino Bartali (1914-2000)

Today when we think of great Italian cyclists we think of the flamboyant riders like Cipollini, but true Italian tifosi know that Gino Bartali commands the greatest respect, for his achievements both on and off the bike.

During the 1930s -1940s Bartali repeatedly won grand tours like the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia, as well as classics like Milan- San Remo
and numerable mountain stages. He was the consummate all-rounder.

Bartali’s great rival was the flamboyant Fausto Coppi, and the battles between them .were legendary. Contrary to Coppi’s lifestyle, Bartali’s life was a conservative, religious one. He would set up shrines in his hotel rooms and eventually be blessed by three Popes.

Bartali spent WW2 helping the Italian Resistance, using his fame to justify his riding throughout Europe without persecution, transporting secret documents within his frame tubes and helping hundreds of Jewish Italians escape death. In 1943, he led Jewish refugees towards the Swiss Alps himself, pulling a wagon with a secret compartment, telling patrols it was just part of his training.

Bartali’s nickname "Gino the Pious" could not have been more apt.

  • Proud to wear it
    Proud to wear a beautiful wool jersey in honor of one of my heroes, Gino Bartali, one of the greatest cyclists of all time and a man recognized as a "Righteous Among the Nations" for his life-saving work during the Holocaust.

  • Wonderful Jersey
    Purchased this jersey to wear it when I rode the L’Eroica Gaiole in Chianti. The jersey performed wonderfully throughout the ride that included rain, cold temperatures, bright sunshine and warm temperatures during a ten hour time span. It held its shape and kept my body temperature regulated the entire ride. In addition, it has great style appear. Thank you for helping to make this ride a great experience.
