We are extremely proud to announce that we are the Official Supplier and designers of technical racewear to the inaugural 2015 Tour De Yorkshire.
As well as the Official TdY jersey available to buy today, we have designed and manufactured the four race jerseys which will be awarded on the race podium; including the overall race leader, King of the Mountain and sprint/points jersey. These will be unveiled in the coming days.
Milltag owner and Creative Director, Ed Cowburn: “Being a proud Yorkshireman, it’s a dream come true that we have been able to work with ASO and Welcome to Yorkshire on these jerseys for the first ever Tour de Yorkshire. We are an ambitious company with a strong desire to change the perception of cycle wear as lacking in style and character, so when the opportunity came up we knew this was our chance to show exactly what we can do. We took inspiration from the rich heritage of Yorkshire’s textile industry and used Welcome to Yorkshire’s iconic ‘Y’ logo to create a series of individual patterns for each of the winner’s jerseys which appear on the shoulders and pockets – you could say that we’ve woven Yorkshire into every jersey.”
Laurent Lachaux from ASO said; “We were instantly impressed with Milltag’s design ideas and very quickly realised we had found a company with great passion for design and for cycling. The technical quality of the jerseys is excellent and as it is combined with a creative and fresh design”.
Stage one of the new Tour de Yorkshire, on Friday 1st May, will start in Bridlington and finish in Scarborough. Stage two, on Saturday 2nd May, will start in Selby and finish in York and stage three, on Sunday 3rd May, will start in Wakefield and finish in Leeds.
