Default UK team kit for London olympics

Is the UK competing for the worst dressed cycling team?

If they got rid of that turquoise logo and put a Union Jack or a simple GB it would be ok.

Well, I'm part Brit and I'm loving it. Nicely abstract without deviating too far from its root.

I don't like it. To me it looks like he is wearing a bib to catch the dribble. Don't see the significance of the turquoise strip either. So much black again?

I would have thought the designers would have made the kit more recognizable for the general UK spectators. (Like the Union Jack or GB logo, as suggested).

But, nice legs Chris :-)

It's weird - most of the kits are essentially half the Union Jack with an alternate colourway Cycling has been given a quarter of a Union Jack, by which point it really doesn't look much like our flag at all. Not a fan of the cycling kit. The overall theme is okay - the red and blue can be a bit too much at times.

To top it off as well, we have Chris Hoy modelling it with a road bike. Surprise weapon for the road race, maybe?

The cycling kit would look better with the full flag on it.I am okay with the new colours.
