The design, by Robert Lara of Major Taylor Cycling Club of NY/NJ, features a 1900 photograph of Major Taylor taken by E. Chickering in Boston; the Worcester, Mass., street sign for Major Taylor Boulevard with the city's "Heart of the Commonwealth" symbol; and on the side panels, the 1899 world champion's nickname, "The Worcester Whirlwind."

The AMERICAN and SPORTSMANSHIP jerseys feature hand-drawn images by artist Kevin Morgan, based on historical photographs of Major Taylor.

The left sleeve of the AMERICAN jersey carries Major Taylor's own words: "I would advise all youths aspiring to athletic fame or a professional career to practice clean living, fair play and good sportsmanship.

A portion of proceeds from AMERICAN and SPORTSMANSHIP jerseys also benefits the Cycling Ambassador community biking program of the Major Taylor Cycling Club of Columbus, Ohio. Run in conjunction with the Columbus City Schools, the program offers riding, repair skills training and mentoring for urban youth.

The back has another Major Taylor quotation: "It is my thought that clean living and a strict observance of the golden rule true sportsmanship are foundation stones without which championship structure cannot be built.
