Rapha Special Edition Pantani Super Lightweight Jersey
story_thumb_rapha-100sep07 Rapha Special Edition Pantani Super Lightweight Jersey For Release April 30, 2014.

This year is the tenth anniversary of Marco Pantani’s death. A Giro and Tour winner, he raced on a knife-edge, lighting up every race he competed in. But his story ended in tragedy, dying of acute cocaine poisoning after a battle with mental illness and drug addiction. To commemorate one of the most meteoric characters in the history of the sport, Rapha have produced a special edition jersey. Inspired by his career, life and the fervent love that many racing fans still have for him, proceeds from sales of the jersey will go to the Pantani Foundation, which supports youth sports provision and the jersey’s inside story label is written by Tonina Pantani, Marco’s mother.

To understand Rapha’s commemoration of Pantani, and our association with The Pantani Foundation, please read this Q&A with Rapha CEO, Simon Mottram.

Tom Southam has written an essay for Rapha and it is fantastic, Il Pirata: The Saint And The Sinner.
