Best and Worst National Champs jerseys

FDJ just knows how to do this.
Clean, classy, and tbh they don't really have to remove the sponsor name/logo, they just do. (Of course with the French champion I guess it sorta helps that the flag is already in team colours.)

Random thought; what would happen if FDJ ever got a Dutch Champion? Both the Dutch and the French national champs jersey have traditionally been with horisontal stripes - perhaps because three vertical stripes on a cycling kit would look somewhat silly - so that could case some issue when it comes to telling them apart...
Of course I recall a time when Quickstep had both a Dutch and a French champion, and last year people got confused between Terpstra and Jungels, due to not noticing the slight difference in the blue.

not a problemen, the french champion's jersey is blue on top, and red in the bottom, the dutch jersey is the other way round, so all good !

"Cycling is a team sport and we want to convey that," a spokesman for Sunweb told NUsport, justifying the more corporate design.
Imagine them trying to elaborate their very own maillot jaune or maglia rosa with a rectangle in the middle of the regular jersey.
Sunweb is an awful team more concerned about what 'hip' hashtag will be on their next kit. I wouldn't have expected anything less from them.

Is Cummings dutch?
Traditional British style, apparently. If I understand correctly the British federation won't accept anything else...

I can't believe the UCI approves Movistar Spanish champion jersey each year.
Apparently it's not UCI that has to improve, simply the Spanish federation...


Love the fact that Aru is going full-flag.
Err... Konovalovas' is simply a matter of it being the traditional Lithuanian way of doing it, right? Otherwise FDJ has taken a giant step backwards. But of course, with the standards they're setting they could really only make it worse.


Now, Trek. I'm counting on you. Don't mess up!

Depends on the team and rider

Trek won a national? I don't remember that, who was it?
