    Nouvelles: | Date:

    Selecting the correct jersey shouldn’t just be about which obscure trade team from the 1970s you want to endorse. It’s a decision informed by how you ride, where you ride and what the weather might be – and you should always have at least half a dozen to choose from.

    Style, of course, comes into it, but picking the right jersey will turn an average ride into a brilliant adventure. We asked a number of Rapha staff and club riders to tell us what their favourite jersey is, and their answers will hopefully help you find yours.
