Les Héros du cyclisme
Incredible history with Sean Kelly
The journalists were telling me ‘You're racing so much, you're going to get tired’, but I was a rider that could be there all through the season.
You can’t talk about cycling’s greatest hardmen without talking about Sean Kelly. The Irishman was the rare all-rounder who could sprint, climb and time trial, but what really propelled him to an astonishing 193 wins during an 18-year pro career was an unrelenting, unbreakable tenacity and grit.
Kelly rode Mavic wheels and gear for most of his career, and to this day his personal mechanic is part of Mavic’s famed Service Course. He relished the hardest races and could endure the harshest conditions better than anyone. He dominated the Paris-Nice stage race throughout the ’80s with seven wins and also piled up victories at grueling classics like Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Milan-San Remo.
Our Les Héros du Cyclisme collection celebrates the cycling gods who once ruled legendary French races. Kelly, known as “Mr. Paris-Nice,” is one such hero. We honor him with this special jersey that is both a throwback and a marvel of modern fabric technologies. Its understated, effortless style reflects Mr. Kelly himself, and the Merino wool blend makes it a comfortable, high-performance piece that’s versatile enough for multiple seasons and all conditions—just like the man himself.
