The Renault/Elf team jersey was and still is a really striking design, made by Castelli in Italy.
Associated Bike Brand: Gitane
The Renault-Elf team was a powerful team that was in action from 1978 until 1985 and was able to win throughout season - mainly due to the calibare of team-leader Bernard Hinault!
Although this exact jersey is a Castelli, it was Assos that brought a modern day replica of this jersey as part of it`s Assos Heritage Pack. Available for two seasons only, the Assos jersey was sold in a gift box with a pair of matching socks and cotton cap. UK retailer Prendas Ciclismo used to sell a better value Renault/Elt retro jersey but sadly they no longer sell it.
