Kelly rode Mavic wheels and gear for most of his career, and to this day his personal mechanic is part of Mavic’s famed Service Course. He relished the hardest races and could endure the harshest conditions better than anyone. He dominated the Paris-Nice stage race throughout the ’80s with seven wins and also piled up victories at grueling classics like Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Milan-San Remo.
Our Les Héros du Cyclisme collection celebrates the cycling gods who once ruled legendary French races. Kelly, known as “Mr. Paris-Nice,” is one such hero. We honor him with this special jersey that is both a throwback and a marvel of modern fabric technologies. Its understated, effortless style reflects Mr. Kelly himself, and the Merino wool blend makes it a comfortable, high-performance piece that’s versatile enough for multiple seasons and all conditions—just like the man himself.
Special features include a Les Héros graphic on the inside, three rear pockets including a pump pocket, and reflective highlights for added visibility on the road.
