2020 Swisse People's Ride Jersey

Designed and made in Italy by Santini, the 2020 Jersey is packed with design and technical features to make your ride a special one.

This year, the official UCI partner drew inspiration from three concepts, each integral to the makeup of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race – SKY, OCEAN, ROAD.

The classic cut Blend jersey has raglan sleeves and Bodyfit fabric on the collar, sleeves and cuffs with raw cut. The all-jersey long zip helps with temperature control and a triple rear pocket makes it easy to carry everything you need on the ride.

Colours in the arm bands pay tribute to the 2019 elite race winners – superstar Elia Viviani, who wore the Italian jersey as their reigning national champion and the yellow signifies the Astana Women’s Team of Arlenis Sierra, winner of the Deakin University Elite Women’s Road Race. See here for some of the standout features of this high performance piece.

Every entrant in the 115km, 65km and 35km gets an exclusive Jersey, making for an unforgettable experience rolling out of Geelong with the wave of fellow riders.

Kit goals

If you want to pair your Jersey with the full kit, our shop is stocked with the official 2020 apparel, including the men’s and women’s bibs, custom socks and event cap. All designed and made by Santini.
