Top 5 Tour de France kids cycling jerseys for 2017
Allez, allez, allez!!! The Tour de France is the world’s biggest cycle race, and here at Cycle Sprog we love cheering on our favourite riders. To get in the spirit of the race, we’ve found our top 5 favourite Tour de France kids cycling jerseys, so your little one’s can emulate their racing heroes. Obviously as the 2017 Tour progresses the jerseys start to sell out, so we’ve listed a number of retailers who sell them – prices and size availability will vary over time.
The Cycle Sprog Top 5 Tour de France kids cycling jerseys
1) Kids Size Yellow Jersey
If you’re going to get the Tour de France look, then the yellow jersey is always a firm favourite! The winner’s jersey beats all others, and comes in a range of kids sizes now at Pro Bike Kit (who had it on discount at the time of writing) Evans Cycles, and Wiggle.
2) Kids Size King of the Mountains Jersey
If hills are your thing, then the King of the Mountains kids sized cycling jersey is a perfect way to show it off. In unscientific studies conducted here at Cycle Sprog we found our son pedalled harder and faster to get to the top of the hill when wearing this jersey.
Here at Cycle Sprog our kids have had both the yellow and KOM jerseys for several years – see our review of the kids size yellow jersey and KOM jersey
3) Endura Movistar
For any inspiring Nairo Quintanas or Alex Dowsetts will love the 2017 junior sized Team Movistar jerseys, which are available at Evans Cycles and Wiggle. They are made by Endura, so should be good quality.
4) Etixx Quick Step Kids Size cycling jersey
For all young Marcel Kittell fans out there, the Quick Step kids size jersey will set your kids apart from the crowd. The new sponsored kit for 2017 (Quick Step Floors, which sound more like something from Strictly than cycling!) is available in a short sleeve version from Evans Cycles.
There is also a junior size Quick Step cycling short available in the 2017 design at Pro Bike Kit.
I particularly like this junior long sleeve jersey on sale at Pro Bike Kit as I think it will be more practical for year round use.
For those not bothered about the latest sponsorship deals, then a bargain can be had with the 2016 model, when they were sponsored by Etixx. At the time of writing is was available from Probikekit.com at a discount price, but obviously on limited availability. They also have some discounted 2016 shorts to complete the look.
5) Tinkoff Junior size cycling jersey
The Tinkoff team are no longer, so this junior sized jersey may well come a collectors item!! The Tinkoff junior sized 2016 jersey is available from Probikekit.com – obviously limited stock is available.
And the one that didn’t make the top 5:
Team Sky Child size cycling jersey
If Chris Froome is your kids favourite cyclist, or Team Sky their favourite team, then the kids size Team Sky cycling jerseys would obviously make their day. At the time of writing (early June 2017) we couldn’t find anyone selling a kids sized jerseys for 2017, but it’s worth keeping an eye on the The 2016 jersey link, in case the 2017 model comes into stock (which will be an updated design on that shown above).
