In case you didn’t know, the Tour De France is coming to Yorkshire this year. Yes next month God’s very own country will be playing host to three stages of one of the greatest sporting events on earth.
Can you think of a less French place than Yorkshire? I can’t and I say that as someone who loves both those places dearly. Despite their striking regional differences official TDF jersey suppliers Le Coq Sportif have perfectly matched the two with two super limited edition jerseys. This year the ever symbolic ‘maillot jaune’ features a Yorkshire rose imprint on the body whereas the ‘maillot noire’ (which was featured for the first time last year when the TDF finished at night time) has a Yorkshire rose flock detail on the chest. With only 500 of each available worldwide of each and what seems like half the planet obsessed with pedal power, these jerseys are likely to fly out faster than a peloton passing through Pontefract.
