7-11 Cycling Jersey

For many North American cycling fans the name Armstrong means almost nothing. The true heros of North American cycling when its comes to European racing is the 7-11 cycling team. The team started in the early eighties and one of their claims to fame was that they were the first North American team that held the yellow jersey at the tour de France. Unfortunately they quickly lost the jersey with a terrible team time trial but thats another story.

The 7-11 cycling jersey was a classic jersey for its style and because of the history of the team. There have been a few new reproductions of this jersey. The listing from Ebay below are likely these reproductions but they are great looking retro cycling jerseys. Note sometimes you might not see any listings because of the different ways that you can spell the team name (7-11, seven eleven etc.) but you can try using the search box.
