“The Col du Galibier was first scaled by cyclists at the Tour de France in 1911. Henri Desgrange, the “Father of the Tour”, heralded it as a great victory for mankind to defy the laws of gravity and climb this giant of a mountain. Referred to by some as the “Roof of the Tour”, the centenary of its presence at the grandest of road races is something to be celebrated, particularly for those who have managed to conquer it.
The Rapha Galibier Jersey is a commemorative piece that features details such as a brevet-style badge, appliquéd typography on the chest, ribbed collar and cuffs and a story label recounting Henri Desgrange’s impressions of this sacred mountain.”
