Tinkoff include the Napoli football shirt into their split training jersey
The half-and-half jersey incorporates the bright yellow colours of Tinkoff’s current kit as well as the iconic blue colours of Napoli, taken from when Maradona formerly played for the club.
Based on the 1987 version of Napoli’s shirt, the year in which Maradona won his first Italian Championship with the club, it will also include his famous number 10 on the back.
The football legend has been an ambassador for the Dubai Sports Council since 2012 and frequently attends the race.
The jersey was displayed by the members of the team during a training ride around Dubai which included Michael Rogers and Erik Baska, who will line up in the race in the race which begins February 3.
Also joining them on the ride was stunt rider Vittorio Brumotti. We don’t quite know why either, but expect to see him sporting the shirt in the near future in one of his videos.
However they might just want to make it a few sizes bigger if they expect Maradona to be wearing it during the tour.
