Raleigh Relives the Golden Age With 40th Anniversary Edition


Celebrating Joop Zoetemelk’s success 40 years on from the 1980 Tour de France, Raleigh is releasing an anniversary edition bicycle and frameset of the TI-Raleigh squad.

Said Adam Snow, Brand Manager;

“We really wanted to mark this momentous milestone for the TI-Raleigh-Creda team, and what better way than to give fans the chance to get their hands on their very own anniversary edition of the winning bicycle!” 


The Special Edition has been recreated using the original features: a Selle Italia Turbo 1980 saddle, iconic red Reynolds 753 frame tubing, Cinelli bars, Mavic Rims, Campagnolo Drive Train, and the new model has been equipped with a larger 10-speed cassette to get up any gradient. 

Continued Adam;

“Just 250 bicycles and framesets will be available, and each will come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by legendary rider Joop Zoetemelk.” 

In the build-up to the official release, fans of the team will also be able to join an exclusive online event that will include an interview with the man himself, Joop Zoetemelk. 


The show will also feature unboxing of the 40th Anniversary Edition bicycle, and a question and answer session with the team. Added Adam;

“Fans can sign up to the celebratory event in advance, where you’ll receive all the details just a few days before we go live. “

Plus, you’ll get exclusive early access to be among the first to purchase this iconic piece of history.” 

The TI-Raleigh Anniversary Edition bicycle and the Anniversary Frameset will be available for the general public to purchase on the 1st September at 4pm.

Allergic to Stairs. I can remember watching the Tour in the years before being a part of the race. I was always completely gutted that just when things got interesting and they’d had a few mountain stages, there would be a rest day.

Laurence Morgan and the TI Raleigh Vintage Cycling Club

Laurence Morgan from Perth was a team TI Raleigh fan back in the 80’s having fallen in love with a 753 Raleigh he saw at the 1982 Scottish Health Race. It’s been an enduring love affair and this year he started the TI Raleigh Vintage Cycling Club – good timing with ‘retro’ the word of the moment. At VeloVeritas we like a man who’s obsessed with 70’s and 80’s bikes and riders; we decided we’d best ‘have a word...

Kiwi’s in the peloton are no rarity these days; George Bennett, Shane Archbold, Paddy Bevin, Jack Bauer are all well-known figures on the World Tour but the spiritual Godfather of these men whilst as Kiwi as they come was actually born in The Netherlands; Mr. Tino Tabak is definitely old school 70’s and ‘tells it like it is.’

Michael Mørkøv – Early Tour de France King of the Mountains

Men of the Tour, thus far ? Wiggins, definitely; Sagan, for sure; Greipel, yes - and, Michael Mørkøv. The Danish ex-World Madison Champion and six day star's stage one breakaway to grab the polka dot jersey and his defence of it for the first week was one of the talking points of the race. Not content with taking all the available points on stage one, he joined the break on stages two and three to make the jersey his own until the stage to La Planche des Belles Filles where the 'bigs' decided to fight it out. We caught up with him on the rest day at the team hotel in Mâcon.

Samuel Sanchez summed it up best in the BMC press release for Stage 20 to Ancares; "To understand how was hard it was, you only have to look at the riders' faces." That was certainly true of Chris Froome, his face ashen, skin tight on his skull, eyes popping, gasping for air like a dying fish.

World Road Championships 2006 – Day 6: Postscript

It's 3.45 pm CET. I've been doing the tourist thing today. Salzburg is beautiful no-doubt, but it's a tad de-caffeinated, a good place to come with your girl but lacking that real-life' edge of say a Gent or a Lisbon. It's hard to find a proper bar but this one seems OK, complete with busty barmaid. World Road Championships 2006.
