  • Giro d'Italia 1949. Stage 17 Cuneo to Pinerolo.

    Fausto Coppi. 9h 19m 55s

    Riders battled cold, wet conditions for 254km over five mountain passes in this epic stage of the Giro. Fausto Coppi attacked on the Maddalena and extended his lead over the Vars, Izoard, Montgenevre and Sestriere. By the end, his winning margin was over 11 minutes, giving him the Maglia Rosa which he eventually won by over 23 minutes. In the same year Coppi also won the TdF, becoming the first man to complete the Giro/Tour double. Forza Fausto!

  • All Black Sheep tees are made from fairly traded cotton. This means that the good people who grow it, pick it and package it for us are paid a decent wage. This is important to us, and we keep on top of it so we know we can look you in the eye and say we're doing our bit.

    Our dyes and inks are also ethically sourced, closer to home than our cotton. The tees themselves are finished in Coalville, just up the road from where we live. Not because we're control freaks (though we are) but because we believe that keeping things local is a sound ecological idea.

    You're slim, lithe, athletic and carrying minimum excess up the Alps or the road to the paper shop on a Sunday morning. You're a grimpeur, a climber, you eat the Stelvio for breakfast. Click here for measurements.

    You're fast, heavily muscled, hitting 60km/h on the road or in your head as you roar past the 100m marker or the 30mph sign at the edge of the village. You're a sprinteur, and Les Champs Elysees are yours. Click here for measurements.

    Our Ewes' tees are cut for women, not too slim and not too fat. Perfect, in fact, for the lady cyclist of today who is, well, not too slim and not too fat. Perfect. Click here for measurements.
