It was like something from space, said Frans Maassen, winner of stage one and key protagonist in the infamous 10-minute breakaway that would shape that years tour.This special edition Pro Team Lightweight Gilet features design elements honouring those days, complete with sublimated artwork and an iridescent treatment reminiscent of the loud logos that dominated cycling in that era.
