Giro d’Italia Jerseys
See Castelli’s official jerseys produced in
honor of the world’s most beautiful race.
Denoting the leaders among the race’s hotly contested points classifications, the Giro d'Italia's leaders’ jerseys have become objects of adoration among cycling’s most committed fans. Although the unmistakable pink Maglia Rosa, worn by the race leader, is one of cycling’s most coveted honors, you may find yourself equally drawn to the points leader's jersey, the red Maglia Ciclamino, the blue climber's jersey, the Maglia Azzurra, or the best junior rider's jersey, the Maglia Bianca.
The Maglia Rosa
Borrowing its signature pink from the newspaper pages of the Giro d’Italia’s original sponsor, the Gazzetta dello Sport, the Maglia Rosa inspires passion in cycling fans the world over. It has been donned by such giants as Coppi and Merckx, which cemented it early on as one of cycling’s most esteemed honors. We’ll have to see whether last year’s winner, Chris Froome, can once again earn the right to wear this iconic leader's jersey.
The Maglia Ciclamino
Only won by those strong enough to keep it on the rivet for the duration of the Giro, the purple points leader's jersey has been donned by giants like Eddy Merckx, Roger De Vlaeminck, and Francesco Moser, which means that last year’s winner, Elia Viviani, has placed himself in some truly extraordinary company.
The Maglia Azzurra
The Giro’s blue jersey is a key part of the story of many of cycling’s greatest racers. Awarded in honor of the Mountains classification, the Maglia Azzurra is for the climbers. Chris Froome won it on his way to last year’s GC victory, which added his name to a list occupied by legends like Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi.
The Maglia Bianca
Made to invoke the freshness of youth, the Giro’s white jersey, denoting the Young Rider classification, has only grown in importance in the modern era. It’s become a proving ground of sorts for the sport’s rising stars, having been worn in recent years by the likes of Rigoberto Uran, Nairo Quintana, Bob Jungles, and most recently, Miguel Angel Lopez.
