We'd call the team celebrated by the Biemme Mapei Vintage Kit Men's Jersey many things -- big, bold, wealthy, and quite possible the greatest in the history of professional cycling -- but we wouldn't call it surpassed since its untimely disbanding in 2002. Call us nostalgic, but that's just the way we like it. The team with an affinity for barreling over the cobblestones faster and with more poise than any other -- recall those three podium sweeps in the Roubaix velodrome -- has been brought back to life by Biemme Sports this season. The Italian-based apparel manufacturer released its Mapei Vintage jersey as an homage to the great Italian team that defined its parent company as much as it advertised it, with the jersey embodying all of Mapei's mid-90's, multi-colored, cube-pile glory. Gracing the likes of a young Evans, Cancellara, Rogers, Pozzato and other greats as they were guided by their loyal il dottore, the jersey is representative of an era of cycling that has yet to be matched. Wearing a Mapei jersey out on the roads will earn you serious street cred, and it also might make you an educational billboard for a generation of naive young cyclists on their sleek carbon frames who weren't yet born when Mapei folded. They need your help. Of course, the jersey is also designed to be practical to ride in with a straightforward, moisture-wicking fabric cut to fit close-to-the-body. A full-length zipper, three standard rear pockets, and an elastic waistband all ensure the jersey maintains functionality whether you save it for special occasions or zip it on every chance you get.
