Sky didn't do sleeve bands last year either except for wiggo. For example geraint thomas or christian knees didn't have theirs.

They seemed to have fixed that this year and even have a mini union flag on the sleeve rather than the traditional red white and blue stripes. Having said that i haven't seen christian knees yet to see if he has his german bands

interesting to see on the rapha site - http://www.rapha.cc/shop/team-sky/?u...paign=shop_cta - that there is a "wiggo" replica, with the british flag, but nothing for germany.

what is interesting to note, is that there is a version with stripes on the sleeve instead of the flag, as the thumbnail, but then changes to the flag once you click into the item, indicating to me that the flag idea was a last minute change.

Knees has the German colors on his right sleeve where G and Wiggo have their Union Jack banner.

Good stuff. All the pictures on the team sky website seemed to miss the right sleeve and he hasn't raced yet this season so wasn't sure if he had them.

Glad to hear that he does

I like it. Reminds me of Kirchen's champions jerseys.

Oh thanks, I had been looking for this! I like this a lot, what a shame he doesn't get to wear it all the time. Plus next year he will lose it even if Jungels pedals with one leg

The only weird thing is the brown in the crotch (and I assume lower back?!) area... but AG2R have great jerseys (IMO) and make some of the best national champion's jerseys!

Now that's classy. Reminds me of Real Madrid in their Centenary year.
