Surely it's not.

No national champion in their right mind is ever going to wear a jersey with the wrong flag on it.

this is what new zealanders look like:



I am sure these guys would fit in great in masters crit racing in California or could do a mean first lap in the team track sprint.

This is utter crap! Especially when you compare it to the NZ champ jerseys Julian Dean had at Credit Agricole, Garmin and HTC.

THIS is how a NZ champ should look.



This used to be one of the best looking and most distinctive national champ kits in the peloton

Julian Dean was the first rider to create truly distinctive NZ champons jersey by going with the silver fern design when at Credit Agricole and then the following year at Garmin.



The fern replaced a boring white jersey with two solid black lines that had been the jersey up until then (but still infinitely better than Radiofail's effort).



Roulston's jersey at HTC was IMO the best example of what a Kiwi champ should look like...



Jack Bauer's at Endura was pretty similar to Dean's Garmin version and wasn't too bad either.

I'm still stunned at how unbelievably bad Radioshack's is.

Some teams (Radioshack, Movistar for example) for reasons I cannot fathom seem incapable of designing a good national champ jersey.

Maybe they should all just hire one guy to design all their jersey's, whoever designs OPQS's national champ jersey's.

RadioShack don't do sleeve bands either. Dunno why but that just irritates me no end.
