You’d think retiring from professional cycling would be enough to make Sir Chris Hoy settle down with a packet of biscuits and a bit of light entertainment on the telly box. However, as he demonstrated when modelling his new HOY Vulpine exclusive collection, he’s not slowed down.
Sir Chris has worked with Vulpine clothing to launch a limited edition Palmarès jersey, available in men’s and women’s fit, to celebrate his career. The jersey features six gold bands and a single silver band to represent the Olympic medals held by the sprinter.
“He’s still built like the proverbials, and yet still gets incredibly low and aero”
Describing the sight of the six time Olympic Gold medallist pummelling the track at the aptly named Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow, Vulpine founder Nick Hussey said: “It was breathtaking for both me and photographer, Alexander Rhind to stand on the track as Sir Chris came hammering past only inches away. He’s still built like the proverbials, and yet still gets incredibly low and aero. It was spine chilling to be that close to him in full attack, and so appropriate to shoot it on ‘his’ velodrome.”
