Rouleur rider tees on sale now

Nice range of shirts from illustrator Richard Mitchelson

Still stuck for ideas for your Christmas list? Well the chaps at Rouleur have anticipated that, and commissioned a range of tees from ace illustrator Richard Mitchelson, he of the Eddy Merckx animation we featured a while back.

You can have Eddy of course, and there's also José Manuel Fuente, Felice Gimondi, Greg Lemond, Laurent Fignon and Marco Pantani in the star-studded line-up. The tees themselves are nicely understated with the graphic fairly small on muted plain colours, and the Rouleur 'R' on the sleeve is the only other decoration. They're not cheap at £30 a pop but it's preferable to some more socks or a 3-in-1 tyre inflator/foghorn/toaster from the garage. If granny's budget won't stretch that far you might want to point her in the direction of our own tees...

Simply write on your letter to Santa with your choice of cycling legend in brackets, and your new upperwear should be winging its way to your stocking before you know...
