MILAN — Longtime cycling enthusiast Sir Paul Smith has created the leaders’ jerseys for the 96th edition of the annual Giro d’Italia race, which kicks off May 4 in Naples, Italy.
“I’ve been a cycling fan since I was 12 — it’s a dream to do this for such an important race,” said Smith during the official unveiling of the jerseys at his Milan showroom earlier this week. “I have a huge collection of jerseys myself from the Seventies right up to current times, often signed by the riders. Cycling has just exploded recently — I thought it would be a cool thing to do.”
