2013 Tour de France maillot jaune
It won’t be long before we start thinking about July and this years Tour de France – 2013. Le Coq Sportif has revealed its designs for the 100th edition of the Tour de France Maillot Jaune.
This year’s jersey will be unique to 2013’s race with a translucent ‘Moor’s head’ design at the front to signify the grand depart host, Corsica, and also reflective detailing which will shine under the street lighting at the night grand finish, which will be a Tour de France first this year.
A design-led garment which is said to take inspiration from the 1951 Tour Maillot Jaune when Le Coq Sportif first supplied the race with its iconic overall classification leader’s jersey, as well as paying tribute to Henri Desgrange who founded the Tour de France.
