The best kids size race team cycling jerseys for 2018
Allez, allez, allez!!! The season of the big bike races has started - Giro D'Italia, Tour de France, La Vuelta and the Tour of Britain are all great opportunities to get behind your favourite riders and cheer them on. To get in the spirit of the racing, (and also to motivate kids to get out and ride their own bikes) we've hunted down the best Tour de France kids cycling jerseys (and the couple that relate to other races) for the 2018 season, so your little one's can emulate their racing heroes. Obviously as the 2018 race season 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 2018 TDF jersey is now in the shops in kids sizes and has, as always a unique design especially for this year, which you can read about here.
The kids size TDF yellow jersey is available from Chain Reaction Cycles for £60.
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.
At the time of writing, (9th June 2018) it was available in kids sizes at Chain Reaction Cycles for £60, although more stockist may become available in the run up to the race.
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) Team Sky Kids sized cycling jersey
For Team Sky fans everywhere, there's good news (!) this year, as there is a junior Team Sky race jersey available. Sadly missing for 2017, the new look 2018 jersey is white with the distinctive Sky blue band. Made by Castelli it's manufactured from the same high quality breathable wicking Prosecco Strada fabric as the Castelli Pro jerseys, and comes with three rear pockets and a full length YKK zipper again just like the Pros. Obviously, the big difference between this and the Sky team riders jerseys is its smaller! Available in age sizes from 6 years through to 12 years, from Evans Cycles.
4) Kids size 2018 La Vuelta Red Leaders Jersey
OK - so this isn't strictly a Tour de France kids sized jersey, as it's the red leaders jersey from La Vuelta. But if you want to get into the Spanish spirit, this year you can with the 2018 La Vuelta kids sized race leaders red jersey. The race doesn't take place until August, but the kids size jerseys are already available at Pro Bike Kit, sized for ages 7-8 through to 11 - 12 years.
5) Endura Movistar
Any inspiring Nairo Quintanas will love the junior sized Team Movistar jerseys. The team will be wearing blue this year, but you can still pick up the old 2017 green kids sized jerseys at Evans Cycles . They are made by Endura, so should be good quality.
6) Etixx Quick Step Kids Size cycling jersey
The Quick Step kids size jersey will set your little racer apart from the crowd. 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.
There is also a junior size Quick Step cycling short available in the 2017 design at Pro Bike Kit.
For those not bothered about the latest sponsorship deals, then a bargain can be had with the discounted 2016 shorts to complete the look.
