At Velogear, we're all about bikes. We love riding them, reading about them and fixing them. And when bikes are on TV, we love watching them. We want to make it easy for you to indulge your love of cycling, too. We stock cycling clothing from the best brands in the sport, along with books, DVDs, parts, accessories and more. We want to be your one-stop shop for all things cycling!
Often, cycling's eras are chronicled by the champions of the day. That early-2000s era? The Armstrong Era. The late 1960s to late 1970s? The Eddy Merckx Era.
But what about the Renato Longo Era? The Italian cyclocrosser could be found on the world championship podium quite often from 1959 to 1969. Renato won the rainbow stripes in 1959, 1962, 1964, 1965 and 1967. He was second in 1961 and 1963 and third in 1969.
Event artwork from his fourth championship adorns the 1965 Ciclo-Cross T-Shirt from Retro Image Apparel. Renato won the title in front of his home crowd in Italy. Celebrate today's racers with a bit of heritage!
