Discover the official Jersey designed by G4!

April 28th 2015


Before creating a collection you have to do your homework and find out all the relevant details. Who is it for? What is it for? At what time of year and where will the clothes be worn? Which event? Above all you have to understand the clients’ needs in order to combine all that information to produce the design, style and cut in the chosen materials. It has to be pertinent and objective.


Explain your inspiration for the design for EXPLORE Nice Metropole? How did you start?

For this week-long challenge, I had to create a jersey you’d be happy to wear all week. In addition, it had to showcase the different formats of this unique race. The black base colour is both elegant and reflects the difficulty of the event while yellow refers to the French Riviera sunshine and azure blue to the city of Nice. Lastly, the reflection of the mountains in the sea symbolises the geographic situation of the French Riviera, between the mountains and the sea. My design had to reflect the passage of the participants through stunning scenery and on testing terrain.


My broad experience as a professional cyclist is always fundamental to the design process. The kit is developed only after extensive testing to ensure a comfortable and ergonomic fit for all body types and for both road racing and time-trialling disciplines. We use a mix of three new generation fabrics which give an aerodynamic fit and have excellent moisture wicking properties. The jersey is form-fitting with plenty of pro-detailing such as a shorter collar and laser cut sleeves which is just what you need for a demanding week on the bike


The clothing sponsor G4 is one of the few global brands in the world producing complete high-performance and quality collections. Every single tiny detail is important as is the clothing’s performance and look on the bike before and after the ride. We have therefore developed the Official jersey and bib-shorts with the same vision, comfort, quality and style. We have also produced socks s to complete the kit Explore – Nice Metropole by the Tour de France. In addition, you can relax comfortably before and after riding in our matching official cap, t-shirt and sweatshirt.
