XMAS: Will it be socks or something special?

Will it be socks, chocolates, gift tokens or even a box of the dreaded individually monikered handkerchiefs? Velostars have an idea!

Buying Christmas pressies for cycling friends and relatives is always a tricky one but, following such a stellar year for British cyclists, a T-shirt from www.velostars.co.uk might be the answer.

HTC rider Mark Cavendish became the first Brit to win the green points jersey in the Tour de France; Bradley Wiggins was also outstanding, taking victory in the Critérium du Dauphiné and third place in the Vuelta a España; Geraint Thomas had an impressive season, which included several days wearing the white jersey in Le Tour and top spot in the Bayern-Rundfahrt.

So, how about giving a Velostars silk-screen printed T-shirt for Christmas? It’s got to be better than a pair of socks! The T-shirts, which are individually printed in Britain, cost £17.50 (including 1st class postage and packing) and are only available at www.velostars.co.uk
