The Tour de l’Avenir is affectionately known as the U23 Tour de France. In 2022, Black Sheep became official clothing provider of the race that defines the many of the future greats. A 10 day stage-race across cycling-mad France, contested solely by riders aged under 23. Belgium’s Cian Uijtdebroeks, the favourite for the 2022 Tour de l’Avenir, won the two hardest stages and stamped his mark on this race, and the Future of Cycling along with it.

10 days. 9 stages. 1137 kms.
One Winner.
