Inspire your Cycle Sprog with a kids size yellow jersey
If Geriant Thomas's inspirational riding in this years Tour de France has inspired your youngster to get out on their bike, a child size Tour de France yellow jersey (Maillot Jaune) could help spur them on even more. The 2018 kids size jerseys are now available, but selling fast! Every year they sell out (I know because last year I helped a very hassled dad try to find the last one in existence for a Christmas present - he ended up shipping it from France!) At the time of writing (27th July 2018) the following retailers had some sizes in stock of both the General Classification winners yellow jersey and the King of the Mountains polka dot jersey:
- Chain Reaction Cycles: Price £60 CURRENTLY DISCOUNTED TO £39 (35% off) - sizes available ages 8 -9 through to 14-15 years. - LOW STOCK
For the 2018 race the jersey design has been changed slightly, to remove the usual collar, and to include a couple of geometric blocks of colour (apparently inspired by the artist Piet Mondrian) - you can just about see the if you look carefully at this picture
Le Coq Sportive kids size Tour de France yellow jerseys are the official race replica jerseys, and are made to the same standard as the adult replica shirts, and come in the following ages: 6 (s), 8 (M), 10 (L), 12 (XL) and 14 (XXL) years.
The kids yellow jerseys have all the technical specifications you'd expect, including a lightweight polyester fabric, three rear pockets, a breathable 3D mesh panel at the base of the neck and a mesh panel to stop sweaty backs.
The RRP for the Coq Sportive junior size Tour de France Yellow jersey is £60.00, and they are available at
Can I get a kids size King of the Mountains jersey?
Yes, as well as the child size Tour de France yellow jerseys this year Coq Sportive are also doing a kids size King of the Mountains jersey. This too comes with out the collar, although I'm not sure about the geometrical block - if it does, then it's even harder to see in this picture!
