A new brand of cycle wear comes out which was designed for cyclists to wear off and on the road. The Telegraph-Road brand is from Aaron Firth. He is an avid cyclist with a mission to make a smooth transition from ‘the team’ and ‘the technical’.

The 2010 spring/summer line is composed of six new jersey designs with a white theme color to set off the contrasts of the colors used on the jerseys. The white colortone was chosen to keep the rider cool under the heat of the sun since it will act to deflect the sun’s rays.

The material used on the jerseys is stretchable sweat-wicking fabric. Seams are locked with a cover stitch to provide a better fit that is comfortable yet functional. To avoid draft, Telegraph-Road inserted a silicone strip on the rear hem to prevent it from exposing your back while cycling.

All jerseys have a bite tab…

The winner Alexandre Vinokourov said, “I’ve turned the page.” He caused his team Astana to pull out of the race and was kicked off the second stage win for the 2007 Tour de France because of blood doping.

Vinokourov leaves a pool of all-time favorites well-wishers in awe when he bagged the oldest one-day classic for the second time.
