This is more like what some teams used to do, give shoulder stripes to former national champions, or the former world champion....

Sadden that they ruined what could be an amazing jersey. The thing they did on the shoulder/arm, why not do it on the 'jersey' itself. Full white jersey with the Austrian coat of arms over the flag stripes (just like on the shoulder) right on the center, with all the logos in black.

I wonder what is Riccardo's opinion on this cr@p shirt.

Also, how are we supposed to distingish him from other TREK riders? Everyone has that white shoulder... I assume Austria is on of the federations that does not impose any rules on the design of the national champion jersey? Otherwise why not do it like the Luxembourg or Belgian flags?

well, Zoidl knows what to do know. Enter as many stage races as possible and grab the leader jersey immediately.

That Austrian one is terrible. Very disappointing as it looks like they got the Luxembourg one right after all these years - Jungel's one reminds me of Kim Kirchen's great Fasso Bortolo champs jersey :cool:
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

Kim Kirchen's Fassa Bortolo one, with the shorts in blue, was easily top-5 of best champ jerseys ever

This is how a nicely done Austrian Champion jersey can look like:

Well I am happy for Roly for his 4th NZ NC win, he seems like a top bloke.... but sad for the cycling community. My guess is they leave out the white sleeve and the little white stripe on the shorts for his jersey and call it a "national champion's jersey". NZ are the "all blacks" after all.

Or will they go and turn it around like they did at HTC....... nope. Probably not.

Discussion on twitter:

José Been ‏@TourDeJose

Roulston is fifth national champion in @TrekFactory after Devolder (Belgium), Jungels (Luxembourg), Kiserlovski (Croatia) & Zoidl (Austria)

Luke Poyser ‏@ljpoyz

@TourDeJose @TrekFactory silver fern on the sleeve now?

Cameron ‏@au_sesquip

@ljpoyz @TourDeJose you can see it happening can't you? @TrekFactory 2/3 of your NC jerseys are an insult to those riders and nations!

[color="Red"]Trek Factory Racing ‏@TrekFactory[/color]

[color="Red"]@au_sesquip The jerseys were actually approved by the national federations & the riders.[/color]


Looks like it's their own damn fault for having cr@ppy jerseys....

'Approved' is an interesting word:
Trek: Do you want this bit of colour on the sleeve and shorts, or nothing at all?
Rider/Federation: The sleeve and thigh are better than nothing, but we would really like...
Trek: Good, you have approved it then.

No sleeve bands for previous champs either, I notice.

"approved" does make sense because the national federation can veto the jersey, like the belgians did with Devolders' last year. But apparently the croatian and austrian federation didn't care

Agree, you just don't want to mess with a traditional jersey like this. Disaster.

Not all national federations have codified what an acceptable design is.

I'm not a big fan, but I appreciate that, even if they didn't make a satisfactory national champ jersey, it wasn't because they didn't want it to stand out or to be any different from their normal kits.
