Inspire your Cycle Sprog with a kids size yellow jersey
If Geriant Thomas's inspirational riding in last 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 2019 kids size yellow jerseys have just come into the shops and we expect them to sell fast! Most years they sell out of every size (I know because I've helped a very hassled dad try to find the last one in existence for a Christmas present - he ended up shipping it from France!)
Special 100 year design for 2019 TDF yellow jerseys
2019 is 100 years since the yellow jersey was first introduced to the TDF, and to celebrate there is going to be a different jersey design at the end of each stage (20 in all). 17 of these designs are unique to the winner, but three designs have been chosen to feature on the replica yellow jerseys available to buy this year.
The 2019 kids size Tour de France yellow jersey comes in just one of these designs - the "Jaune Arrivée" design marking the landmark at the end of Le Tour.
The jersey features an eye catching photo of the Arc du Triumph, which has been the location for the final sprint finish of the race every year since 1975. This is the design which will be presented to the eventual winner of the race on Sunday 28th July 2019, but is available to buy now for us mere mortals in both kids and adult sizing.
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 £70.00 (the adult has an RRP of £80) and they are currently available at:
Wiggle (free standard delivery)
Chain Reaction Cycles (free standard delivery)
Evans Cycles (free delivery to local store or £4.99 P&P)
Adult sized TDF yellow jerseys - additional designs for 2019
For older teens and adults, there are two other designs available to buy this year as a celebration of the centenary of the yellow jersey. The adult sizing starts with a size small and has an RRP of £80.
The "Janune Départ" jersey features a photo of the Atomium in Brussells where the 2019 race begins. It will be awarded to the winner of Stage 2 of the race on Sunday 7th July 2019. You can buy your own replica version from Wiggle.
Also available in adult sizes is the "Jaune Col" which features Col du Tourmalet. This legandary Pyrenean climb has featured in Le Tour 82 times since 1910. The rider who is leading the GC race at the end of Stage 14 (Saturday 20th July) will wear this jersey. The replica version is available now in adult sizes from Wiggle, who offer free delivery.
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, which costs £65 from Wiggle with free delivery.
