HAMPSTEN '88 - The Gavia is one of the Dolomites most feared roads. In 1988 the Giro d’Italia returned for the first time in nearly thirty years, with the weather worsening and the riders threatening to strike. One by one, they begged Andy Hampsten not to attack... So he rode solo into the teeth of the blizzard, taking the Maglia Rosa he would keep until Milan and becoming the first US rider to win Italy’s grand tour.

It’s not enough to win. Winning can be boring, routine. But to win with style, with daring, with panache - that is what elevates a rider to the greats. Three of the greatest rides of all time, where riders took the peloton, the race, the elements and the landscape itself and bent it to their will. Each of these wonderful prints, by The Handmade Cyclist, features a subtle hatching detail and a killer quote from the riders that takes you to the heart of the pain and elation they felt as they rode into the history books.
