The Colombian club, then under the name Urrao, took the Team Sky rider under its wing when he was 14 after his father was shot dead.
His time there helped him eventually secure a professional contract in Italy and he continues to ride with them whenever he’s in town. But as it’s now going through a tough time financially and with an uncertain future, Rapha is hoping the $5 from each jersey will go some way to help save it.
The £90 jersey commemorates the Colombian climbers who made their mark in the peloton of the 1980s and is based on the Café de Colombia jerseys of the era. It’s made from an extremely lightweight, fast-drying fabric with the hottest, humid conditions in mind.
