Tee inspired by the accreditation signs of bygone Tour De France convoys and celebrating the 1952 Tour De France. 1952 was the 39th edition of the Tour De France, taking place from 25 June to 19 July. It was composed of 23 stages over 4,898 km (3,043 mi). The 1952 Tour introduced two new concepts to the race - firstly the summit finishes we see today on the highest mountain peaks, and secondly the combativity award. The race was won by Italian Fausto Coppi. Coppi dominated the race, winning five stages and the mountains classification, and was a member of the winning Italian team. His dominance was so large that the Tour organisation had to double the prize money for second place to make the race interesting. At the end, Coppi had a margin of almost half an hour over the second-ranked cyclist; such a margin has never been achieved again.
