French cyclist Christophe Laporte has shown off his new European champion outfit before making his debut in it today at the Famenne Ardenne Classic. The jersey, characterized by its white and blue colors, as well as yellow stars and black pants, has become a badge of honor for the French cyclist.
In a gesture of sponsorship, the cyclist also received a Cervélo bicycle specially colored in the colors of the European flag. This new equipment will allow him to stand out in the peloton as a continental champion. In addition, to complete his look, Laporte will wear a matching white helmet from Lazer.
