The guys from Opsal Sport popped round to the stand to show us their new range of shirts. All the designs are by cycling artist Brian Opsal, and printed in eco-friendly water based inks on organic cotton shirts. There's a range of Tour de France and generic cycling imagery. Pictured are a shirt based on a L'Equipe cover featuring Bernard Hinault's famous quote, 'Tant que je respire, j'attaque!' - As long as I breathe, I attack! - and a design inspired by the red stripe worn by elite S-class Keirin racers. For details of the full range, hop over to www.opsalsport.com - there's more shirts, and posters too.
