Chasing The Rainbow

Chasing The Rainbow

In the world of competitive world cycling, the rainbow jersey is awarded to every cycling world champion across all of the cycling disciplines. Either as a member of a team as in the case of the team pursuit or individually. From the track to the road to cyclocross, the rainbow jersey is only allowed to be worn by the world champions throughout the following year and is the most coveted jersey in all of cycling
