Description

A classic quote needs a classic china mug.

Enjoy your pre-ride brew in one of our handsome mugs, made by one of the oldest surviving fine bone china manufacturers in England. Fired in the heart of the potteries in Stoke on Trent in the same building that's been used since 1875 - a time before the Tour was even a twinkle in Desgrange’s eye

The fourth in a series of designs celebrating the words of wisdom of the cycling greats.

The design is based on the iconic Renault team jersey - with Hinault and Fignon in tandem and under the guidance of Cyrille Guimard, Renault bossed the peloton. Their jersey remains a classic. Bernard Hinault also known as Le Blaireau, or "The Badger" (as he never took a backward step, when cornered - he attacked).

Hinault is one of the select band of greats to have won the Tour de France five times, but he was much more than a tour man. Along with Sean Kelly, he was the last bastion of the great riders who competed and won through the year - one day classics, grand tours, world championships - he won them all. He remains one of the great icons of French and world cycling, a hard man who gave no quarter and won through sheer determination matched by incredible talent.
