Product Description

Sometimes, it’s not the GC riders that make the best stories of the Tour de France. Often the story of the “Combattant” is the finest.

“Combattant” translates in to “Fighter” and the Combativity award is given to the most aggressive rider of the day for each stage of the Tour. Handsome funds in addition to spectator admiration are at stake so throughout the history of the race it is this prize that often brings about the most imagination from the riders. Mindless racing manoeuvres are generally the recipe for success within this sub competition, whether they are daredevil descents or completely bonkers, all day solo breakaways. The riders that contest this award tend to be chancers, gamblers betting on themselves in what is ultimately a high-stakes game that is rarely rewarded with stage victory.

At the end of each stage, when the combativity prize is presented on the podium the winning rider is awarded a coveted red number which he can adorn for the next stage, proudly linking him to his previous day’s efforts.

Considered widely as a number that brings ill fortune, the rider who wears race number 13 during the Tour often pins it on to his jersey upside down in a superstitious attempt to negate any bad luck that may be coming his way.

Being the race number 13 as well as the “Combattant” is quite a rare occurrence but when it happens it seems to bring even more adulation as the rider is not only one that battles the odds and ignores racing self-preservation but is also one who fights against the demons and spectres of bad luck.

Our "Combattant" t-shirt features a hand screen print that is designed and produced here in our "Printworks". The screen print uses waterbased inks for a soft hand and vintage effect while the t-shirt itself is our premium quality,  New Organic t-shirt that offers supreme levels of comfort via sustainable, environmentally friendly materials.
