Matt Barbet is a journalist and broadcaster, who works primarily in television news, but also indulges his interest in cycling on screen and in print. His favourite jerseys are the Tour's classic Le Coq Sportif Yellow Jersey, as worn by Bernard Hinault, emblazoned with the Banania sponsor and raffishly unzipped, and also the Giro's Maglia Nera, or black jersey, that used to be given the last man to finish the race.
