Anyone who grew up watching cycling with Liggett and Sherwin calling the races will be all too familiar with the metaphorical suitcase of courage. Though the race organizers may not have been inspired by it, we find it unlikely that California's Most Courageous Rider SS JerseyClubGear wasn't at least partially inspired by that colorful piece of commentary. Assos made the jersey awarded to the race's actual leader in courage, and it also produces this replica for those of us who daily unpack our own suitcases of courage.
This jersey's hallmark is its exceptionally lightweight, almost mesh-like fabric. It's designed to keep riders cool and in-focus over the gruelingly hot climbs of Southern California's mountain ranges whether they're suffering to hang on to a narrow GC lead or turning the screws on a group ride. Its fit follows suit, striking a balance between race-aero tight and fondo loose to provide a streamlined profile that remains comfortable through mid-week hammer fests and weekend double centuries alike. As such, the ToC Most Courageous jersey is poised to hold court on a front-row hanger as a versatile essential in your daily cycling kit decisions.
