Now for 2014 – the RAGBRAI XLII Jersey!



Corn – RAGBRAI backdrop, food source, rest stop and the inspiration behind the 2014 RAGBRAI XLII Jersey by Primal. A little corny, we admit. But let’s face it, this popular vegetable is a part of our ride! This year’s jersey design features the RAGBRAI XLII corn and bike badge logo on a background of leaves. Pick one up today! Preorder one of two ways: during your RAGBRAI XLII Registration or on our web store at RAGBRAI.com/shop. Preordered jerseys will start shipping the last week of March, 2014.

Women’s version is sleeveless, men’s version has sleeves. For both women’s and men’s versions, the jersey features a raglan style cut with a full length hidden zipper and three rear cargo pockets. Constructed of 100% SpeedPro advanced moisture transfer fabric.

Shorts will also be available in men’s and women’s sizes, bibs will be available in men’s sizing only.

Available Men’s Sizes: Small – 5XL
Available Women’s Sizes: XSmall – 3XL

What an awesome jersey! This ranks right up there at the very top of the RAGBRAI designs, almost better then last year’s HOG, almost.

I’m not sure riding the roads in corn country wearing camouflage is a good idea.

I like it! With up to size 5XL for the really manly men and up to 3XL for the women with real curves, very good!! Plus….our team seamstress will not have to take the sleeves off for the gals on the team because the women’s jersey is ALREADY sleeveless!!!

Camo corn? I like it. And, I’m not too worried about blending in with the “scenery” in a typical RAGBRAI peloton with hundreds of different jerseys on display. It won’t be my pick to wear near sunset or dawn riding by myself but …What’s next for jersey designers – a theme that includes supplemental rocket propulsion caused by poorly digested beans? If the designers for the 50th RAGBRAI need an idea try this one: a montage of famous Iowa sights – buildings, landscapes, river views, etc. It could be the Iowa Welcome Center on a shirt or jersey!

Very creative and tool jersey
lets face it, corn is the most versatile plant in the world, why not celebrate it with a stylin jersey

A word of caution to all the guys who run into the corn fields to pee……check your surroundings!

Gotta love the chain links for kernels. No tire levers as leaves of husk?
