NEW YORK CITY, November 3, 2015. The official jersey of the 2016 Campagnolo GFNY Championship was revealed today on Times Square in NYC. For the third year, the jersey is designed by Alex Ostroy of Poseur Sport, America’s most talented kit designer. It is produced in Italy by Biemme, one of the world’s leading cycling apparel companies.
“Being racers ourselves and wearing GFNY jerseys year-round in training and racing, we’re not making compromises on fit or quality,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “One of our favorite features have been the soft-to-touch cuffs. And we further improved the feel of the jersey this year by using the latest Coolmax technology and adding a little length to the arms to follow current trends.”
Over the last five years, GFNY fitted upwards of 20,000 riders from 96 countries in their jerseys, offering sizes from 2XS to 5XL each year. The key to success is a European-style race fit in combination with stretch panels on the side. The innovative stretch panels allow cyclists of every shape and size to not only feel great while wearing the GFNY jersey, but also look great.
As part of GFNY’s commitment to preserving a clean planet, the jerseys come with two extra pockets, one on each side, which hold gel and bar wrappers that otherwise either soil already full pockets or, worse, end up on the ground.
All 5,000 riders of the May 15, 2016 race will wear the jersey because it is mandatory attire for the race. But beyond that, the jerseys are used by many in training and at other events around the globe year-round.
