Back for the future

 

Team Raleigh has released image of its 2014 race kit giving a nod to the classic TI-Raleigh kits of the 1970s and 80s with an eye-catching red and black design, commissioned originally by Peter Post, highly successful manager of TI-Raleigh between 1974 and 1983.

The original kit was manufactured by MOA Sport’s founder Claudio Montovani. The Italian manufacturer still makes Raleigh’s kit as well as race and replica kit for a host of other racing teams.

 

Team Manager Cherie Pridham said “With the official team presentation coming up, the Tour of the Mediterranean just around the corner and a few pictures leaking out from our training camp we wanted to share something very special that we’ve been trying hard to keep under wraps for several weeks.

 

The response has been phenomenal, especially here in France [at the training camp]. We’ve had big crowds seeing us off on our training camp rides and asking for pictures with the riders. I’d like to thank MOA Sport and the design team at Raleigh for such an iconic creation.”

 

The team will be in action in their new kit this weekend (13th to 16th Feb) at the Tour of the Mediterranean, which starts in Argeles Sur Mer, France. Following that the team will be officially presented in front of the world media at La Londe-les-Maures on Wednesday 19th February.
