The best kids size race team cycling jerseys for 2018
Allez, allez, allez!!! Wasn't 2018 a fabulous year for Brits riding fast on bikes? With three different British men (Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and Simon Yates) holding all 3 grand tour titles and Dame Sarah Storey, Katie Toft and Steve Bate triumphing at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships Britain is certainly dominating on the road. And on the track there were two golds at the recent UCI Track Cycling World Championships, and a whopping 11 at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships! With two golds from younger riders in the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships the future of this sport looks good too. If all this success is spurring on your Cycle Sprog, then here's our pick of the best kids size team and championship jerseys, which may just make them pedal that bit faster!
Note: Christmas is a difficult time to get hold of team jerseys, as the 2018 stock has mainly sold out, and the 2019 designs aren't released until early summer. This is our pick of those designs remaining in the shops, for Christmas 2018. Stock is limited, so apologies if they've sold out by the time you get there!
The Cycle Sprog guide to kids cycling jerseys for Christmas 2018
Kids size UCI World Champions jersey (from £30.25)
If your Cycle Sprog is dreaming of one day wearing the world champion stripes, you can help that dream come nearer with a kids size replica UCI World Champions jersey. They come in sizes 5 years through 11 years, and are available from Bike Inn from £30.95
Team Sky Kids sized cycling jersey
Made by Castelli, the Team Sky kids jersey is 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!
There is very limited stock available, but at the time of writing we found some sizes at:
A few pairs of Team Sky cycling shorts remain at Bike Inn
Kids size 2018 La Vuelta Red Leaders Jersey
Giro D'Italia kids size cycling jersey (from £48)
If you prefer your Giro D'Italia jerseys in a different colour, then the official Castelli kids size Giro jerseys come in black, white, blue or pink, and a range of sizes from 6 years through to 13 years. Being Catelli they're not cheap, but should be good quality. Various sizes and colours still available at Chain Reaction Cycles.
Matching junior sized Castelli Giro cycling shorts are also available.
Sportful Bora Hansgrohe kids jersey
Peter Sagan fans will love to wear the Sportful Bora Hansgrohe Kid Jersey, which is available for £31.95 from Bike Inn. At the time of writing sizes 8 years and 14 years were still in stock. Matching shorts are also available.
Etixx Quick Step
The Quick Step kids size jersey will set your little racer apart from the crowd. I particularly like this junior long sleeve jersey 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.
Kids Size Yellow TDF Jersey (please read full text about sizing)
After the joy of G's win back in July, it's not surprising that virtually all UK stock of the 2018 TDF yellow jersey has sold out! There were a few sizes left on ebay, saying they can deliver in time for Christmas. The official Tour de France website does also say it has them in stock. I'm slightly confused about the sizings on both of these, as they correspond to the adult, rather than the kids sizes, so it may be worth checking before you part with your cash. Also check shipping dates and costs if you want in time for Christmas.
