The new Rapha Men's Pro Team Training Long Sleeve jersey straddles that period between seasons where it's not yet cold enough for full winter garb and not yet hot enough to strip down to exposed limbs. Those spring or early autumnal days can be difficult to dress for, but this long sleeve medium-weight jersey is great for mild days or as part of a set of layers for a colder day.

There's no brushed back, fleece line here which you commonly find on Roubaix, spring orientated jerseys. I actually prefer not having that, because it just gives this jersey more versatility; I've worn it just over a base layer on slightly warmer days, over a short sleeve jersey when there's a wind or a chill, and over arm warmers on those days where you can really sense winter is on its way. Its non-perforated lightweight fabric construction provides some protection at the colder start to the day but is breathable enough when things gradually get warmer. It's a race cut, so it does fit closely, but I found I didn't have any issues with wearing over a couple of layers.
