The very first kit from 1981. If my math is correct, it would be the following season when the red and white thing began. For the first round, all the team bicycles were grey metallic. After that – well, if I have to tell you.
In the meantime there have been 35 + continuous years of doing this. Of supporting riders. Fielding teams. Finding sponsorship. Leveraging industry liaisons for added muscle. Planning. Keeping my balls in the air. Never letting my balls drop.
Soon we’ll begin again. The jerseys have changed over time. Many riders from the early groups have children of their own who are pinning on numbers. It’s a beautiful thing – we all stay in touch. From every era. The memories are for life. Because bicycle racing.
