Over 8,500 riders started the 2012 Taupo Cycle Challenge and most finished. The staggered starts can be good if you like a lie in, but not so good if you fancy yourself as a racer.

Top Gear: Giordana Men’s Bodyclone FR-C Windfront Long Sleeve Jersey

Stopping the wind penetrating your clothing and reaching your skin is one of the keys to staying warm. You’ll also benefit from a layer of air or insulating material between this windproof layer and your skin, so heat is not transmitted by direct contact. Entirely cutting airflow though, brings the problem of trapped perspiration, so ‘breathability’ is often touted as a beneficial feature of high performance sports clothing. Giordana claim their Bodyclone jerseys are versatile enough to cover a wide range of temperatures and preferences. The jersey uses a mixture of windproof and lofted breathable fabrics and has a water repelling treatment. Two high visibility reflective strips flank the rear centre pocket panel for extra night time visibility.

Colour: Black/White
