A striking kit from Etxeondo that unfortunately did not last very long in the European pro peloton.
Associated Bike Brand: Principia
After 3 years in the peloton making steady progress including bagging a ride in the Giro D`Italia, 2001 started well for the team in the Tour Down Under, but then it all fell apart with news that none of the three sponsors had formally agreed terms with the team management.
The quality of this Etxeondo kit was top - notch, and still is, and would certainly not look out of place 12 years later with some top-flight manufacturers choosing to out-source. Etxeondo`s pin-sharp sublimnation, use of quality fabrics, YKK zips set this boutiuqe brand from the Basque country apart from the pack.
Amazing to think that the team boasted the future 2012 Tour de France winner Bradley wiggins, plus it also had the GB national champion John Tanner which Etxeondo made three jerseys which we hope to add to the collection in the coming months.
We also have the year 2000 version of this team jersey by Giordana.
