The Story behind the name
An early crash on stage 11 in the 1973 Giro d’Italia allowed a strong group of pre-race favorites to get away. Top names like Eddy Merckx, Felice Gimondi, Gianni Motta and Roger De Vlaeminck were all represented at the front, while a young Giovanni Battaglin was caught at the back and had to concede three minutes that day.
In the final sprint for the victory, De Vlaeminck once again proved to the quickest as he powered past Gimondi and Merckx to cross the finishing line first in Benevento. De Vlaeminck later went on to win no less than 22 stages in the history of Giro d’Italia.
The Roger 1973 winter jacket is a dedication to the Belgian legend who won so much in Italy during his career.
