If you’re into team kit, have a look at the latest release from Rapha to celebrate the National Championships. They’ve released a Team GB for Ian Stannard and a Norwegian version for Edvald Boassen Hagen. Unfortunately the Team GB sold out in a few hours online.
Team Sky’s Ian Stannard is widely acknowledged as one of the hardest working domestiques in the pro peloton. Having scored his first professional victory with his stage five win at the 2011 Tour of Austria, he was also part of the team that piloted Mark Cavendish to the World Road Race title. A member of the British men’s road race team at the London Olympics, his season’s highlight came with victory at the 2012 British National Road Race Championship, following in the wheel tracks of fellow Team Sky riders Bradley Wiggins and Geraint Thomas.
The main body of the jersey is made from a breathable performance fabric, while the side panels use a more open mesh to help regulate body temperature. Both fabrics wick moisture and have an anti-bacterial treatment. The side panels ensure a better fit and also help keep pockets stable when heavily loaded. The jersey has three large cargo pockets, as well as a vertical zipped valuables pocket. The jersey features red, white and blue hoops on the chest and left cuff, while the right arm has a Union Jack cuff and rubberized Rapha logo.
