Damn I love Jesus Herrada's jersey, thats just a thing of beauty. May he win again and not go back to Movistar! (A Valverde victory would also suffice...)

Delko never dissapoints, I hope Brenton Jones will win the NC.
The Day Team Sky disappears from cycling I'll truly enjoy watching a mountainous Grand Tour stage again -- former Milan-San Remo winner I interviewed.

It looks weird that the sponsor logos are covering the white part of the flag bands. But the general design is awesome.

Nope, sorry. Some national champion jerseys are meant to be full-jersey design. Take the Scandinavian ones, looks silly to attempt to make "stripes" out of such a flag design.
And Nibali isn't a national champion.

Trek’s jersey for Mullen. Not sure about this one. It’s not a bad looking garment, but an Irish champions jersey is supposed to feature the shamrock prominently.

The green band feels a bit odd.

Nibali was national champion for two years in a row, the first version of the jersey was pretty bad with only a square on the abdomen but since the start of 2015 they changed to full chest and fit well with Astana light blue.

Is that written down anywhere? I know Nico had it in the past, but I don’t see any obligation to have it.

I don’t think it’s a great jersey, but I’m not sure that a shamrock or two would rescue that.

When the team kit is essentially the national flag, the way to make an NC jersey is apparently to omit chunks of colours from said flag (black sleeves and red cuffs)

Although I see that Mirza was also 2016 UAE NC, and didn't have (according to pictures at PCS) a distinctive jersey at all.

I don’t know if it’s written down in some Cycling Ireland rule book, but every champions jersey I can think of had the shamrock on the front in some form.

That’s me told! I bow to your superior internetting.

Maybe a) Trek can add the shamrocks or b) there are shamrocks on the green band on his back, we just can’t see them.

Either way, I don’t think it’ll transform what is a fairly ok Jersey.
