New kit will pay homage to some of cycling's past great achievements

After announcing their new collaboration, British cycling apparel brand Le Col and Sir Bradley Wiggins have given an insight into what the kit will look like come Spring in an in-depth video interview.

Chatting to his friend and the founder of Le Col Yanto Barker, Wiggins suggested that the Le Col by Wiggins range will pay homage to the history of cycling with 'recognition of cycling's past achievements.'

Both also hinted that the first run of jerseys, set to be released this spring will have taken inspiration from their days riding together as teenagers in the 1990s.

The 2012 Tour de France champion also stated that he sees the realms of kit design and manufacturing as part of his future stating 'this will be one of the main things I do in my retirement for the next 15 to 20 years.'

Known for his emphasise on style, Wiggins also recalled stories of his youth of how Barker would wear top-of-the-range second-hand clothing from Jeremy Hunt that was unavailable outside of the professional ranks.

The collaboration between Wiggins and Le Col is set to launch in March and will also see Le Col take over from Rapha as technical kit suppliers of Team Wiggins.

Le Col also recently announced that it had joined the Tour of Britain as its official leaders' jerseys providers for the stage race in September.
