Unzué explains why his national champs jerseys are so boring, he wants to defend the interests of his sponsor. According to him these jerseys and the classification jerseys as well are a 'punishment' because there is less space for the team sponsor.

I would call this a b*llshit argument because there is enough space on these jerseys for the team sponsor.

I guess that explains why Valverde seems happy with minor medals at Worlds :rolleyes:

Interesting! Much better jersey, if not near prefect.

A small part from the article through google translate:
Norwegian Cycling Federation has worked actively to get changed Edvald champion jersey.

According to the International Cycling Union (UCI) regulations, national federations approve champion jersey, something they had not done with the previous jersey.
Didn't know the national federations have to approve the jersey. How do the spanish federation allow the terrible designs by Moivstar each year?

Moivstar is pretty much in charge of the Spanish federation so they most likely dont need any approval :D

Because they are pussies unlike Belgium fed, when radioshack tried to create an abomination like they usually did for Devolder, Belgium fed refused that jersey and they had to make a decent jersey for him.

Tinkoff's Czech and Polish jersey are pathetic.
Yep, unfortunately, I had hoped to see some decent national champ jerseys in the peloton. I still remember when I got into cycling (or only TdF) around '04 and '05 where we had Botero, Vino, Ullrich, and also Basso a little earlier if I remember correctly. Landis '04 as well? I remember loving Vino's jersey, Telekom was completely beasting it with Klödi's and Ulle's jerseys as well.

(And yes Flo, I wasn't that old, just a lil kid who loved his mountains :D )
