That moment when you start to write a longish post about how the Dutch and French jersey usually don't like this at all and then just stop, sigh and do something real.

British Cycling are very strict about the Champs Jersey. It has to be a white jersey with the red, white and blue stripes. So in theory even radioshack would have to produce a half decent jersey. For the same reason you'll never get a big union jack design (like the kit used at the world champs or on track events)

Its a classic design and i feel produces a nice retro look.

I like it! :D
But... let's face it; Saxo probably has a standard Danish National Champ jersey use... :p
I've long been a bit confused by the fact that CAS can refer to both:
Court of Arbritation for Sport.
and Chris Anker Sørensen.

I mean why the hell must we suffer with all these differences in National jersey. It's just another way to lessen their importance.
There should be only ONE way the National champ kit is designed, and that should be the same for every ****in team FFS, much like the World champ kit.

What's with this GAZZILLION of colours and **** everywhere, British champs becoming Dutch champs, Dutch champs ridiculing themselves wearing another flag, while French and Luxembourgish champs are getting into a fight, and then the Slovak champs becoming part of a corporate logo, RaboBlancoBelkin allowed to ride...no wait that's for another thread :D

All they have to do is replace the dutch flag with a Union Jack and they'd have a pretty good kit :mad:

I thought so as well, but what about this? (It's about 15 years old so British Cycling might have changed the regulations.)

Could the rainbow stripes on Cav's jersey be considered pretentious or is it custom for former World Champions to put them on their jersey?

Maybe it's just so striking to me because the jersey's white.

How many times have people explained already that Cav's jersey is the traditional British champion's jersey and that the traditional Dutch jersey is full flag and not chest bands?
