Ritchey are launching two new merino wool jerseys just in time for winter.

The L’Eroica is a short-sleeve top which takes its styling cues from the classic jerseys of the 1950s and 60s.

Inspired by the historic Tuscan road race of the same name (see video below), it is hand-made in Italy from 100 percent merino wool.

It features chain-stitched embroidery on the chest, back and shoulders, and three rear pockets. RRP is 159 Swiss francs (approx €105/£95/US$155).
