Inspired by the past. Heralding the future. The Future Classic Collection tells the journeyed story of a decorated race – the Tour de l’Avenir, the world’s pinnacle competition for the future stars of our sport. Built on our most tech-rich Racing and WMN ranges. 

Cycling luminaries like Greg LeMond, Miguel Indurain, Laurent Fignon, Egan Bernal, and Tadej Pogačar all have their names etched in the roll of honour of the Tour of the Future. Previous winners of the Tour de l'Avenir can, in fact, lay claim to as many as 15 Tours de France. It’s a breeding ground for Grand Boucle success. A spotlight in which budding stars, all aged under 23, demonstrate their true potential and vie for national pride.

Like a good bottle of Bordeaux, a stinky Beaufort from Savoie or Renault 5 Turbo, these riders only get better with age. Hence, Future Classic. And as with all our previous Classics Collections, the stripes are a nod to the ubiquitous jerseys of yesteryear. It’s back to the future. 

Built on our latest elevated Racing Aero and WMN Luxlite 2.0 Jerseys, featuring Air/Waffle for decreased drag and more speed. With an incredible soft-hand feel and improved airflow to the rider. So you’ll not only look the part but bloody well feel it too.

The Tour de L’Avenir is a time machine. It’s more than just a race, it’s a look straight into the future. Every year, you’re seeing the next batch of Classics kings, sprint missiles and grand tour champions show the big leagues exactly what they can do. A 10 day stage-race across cycling-mad country, contested solely by riders aged under 23. Why is it so important? 

Well, it’s an audition for the big one. Le Grand Boucle, The Tour de France. It might only be one third of the length, but it’s not about how long it is, and all that…Because when the rubber hits the road this race is all action. You try riding 28 hours in 10 days at over 40kmh, burning 1000 calories an hour. Then tell them it’s just the baby Tour. We’ll be there this August, and we hope you will too. DeLorean optional…
