Santini Cima Coppi Jersey Men's

Though Santini opts to print one of Coppi's other nicknames, Il Grande Airone, on the inside of its collar, the Cima Coppi Jersey will always make us think of the great Italian's most grandiose nickname: Il Campionissimo. That's because at Competitive, our water cooler conversations tend to be about things like Who is the greatest cyclist of all time While Merckx may be the easiest answer, Coppi is a very close runner up and does threaten to overtake the Belgian by outshining him in star power alone.

The Stelvio itself is memorialized as the highest point the Giro ever reaches and the first Cima Coppi, inaugurating the prize in the race's 1965 edition. It's also such a monster that, even in the Giro's contemporary May time slot, the climb is often shortened due to weather. Come mid summer, though, even those lofty peaks can b...
