Now for horrible ones (limiting myself to non-Movistar and non-Radioshack. For the record, the old Movistar Spanish kit was even worse than the current one).

Robbie Hunter's SA champ kit is pretty cool.

The worst was Levi's that someone beat me to above.

Velo Snooze has a good gallery of best/worst champ kits.

At least the Aussie jersey doesn't look like a different country's flag... (or maybe Brazil?! still...).

EDIT: This is one of the best I think. They did a terrible job of it afterwards at Leopard/RSNT...

Yeh I wanted to post Andy in the Lux jersey.

There are jerseys for each region too. e.g, West Midlands, Yorkshire, Scotland Wales.....i.e are awarded when the regional champs take place - usually at the end of May

Here's our Nicole with the Welsh version

Good British Champs Jersey (at least the flags gave it some identity!)

What Movistar and Radioshack do with these National champs jerseys is a disgrace, and should be forbidden!

Andy99 wrote:Agreed. (although its British Champ, not English);)

Its time there was a re-think as the jersey really has no British identity whatsoever. Although historically, our track and field athletes etc have worn the same jersey (no idea why).

Yeah, sorry, I'm in Euro 2012 mode :o

These are the coulors of the Union Jack, of course. But why not just use the actual flag?

Wow. These are just ridiculous. Can't expect much when you use those Rock Racing kits as a starting point though.

I would have sworn that the Discovery US Champ kit was worse than this.

those saxo jerseys were cool. Cancellara, Breschel, Schleck
i also loved Pozzato's initial national jersey with the Kremlin outline and the light colours. i've just read that the Italian Federation wasn't happy with that and that's why they have changed the design.


but wow. Hamilton. Rock Racing. that's amazing. heinous..

edit: Matthew Busche's jersey starting to look good all of a sudden

Blink and you'll miss it! The RSN and Movistar jerseys are bad, but at least there is some sort of clear, if rather bad, indication of championness. This... I can't see it!

Classic Scandinavian with the flag tilted so the cross looks like it would if the flag was hanging in one end. I like it!

Again, classic Scandinavian, and I've always liked this way of covering the entire kit with the flag.
