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 celebrate the 100th edition of the Tour, and the mountains that have made it legendary, Rapha and Strava are proud to announce Rapha Rising: La Centième.
