Nibali was national champion for two years in a row, the first version of the jersey was pretty bad with only a square on the abdomen but since the start of 2015 they changed to full chest and fit well with Astana light blue.RedheadDane said:Nope, sorry. Some national champion jerseys are meant to be full-jersey design. Take the Scandinavian ones, looks silly to attempt to make "stripes" out of such a flag design.Nirvana said:IMHO the classiest are the withe ones with the orizontal stripes on the chest in WC style, the jerseys made by Bora for example are the best. Anyway also something that fits in the team colours like Nibali is good for me.
And Nibali isn't a national champion.
Is that written down anywhere? I know Nico had it in the past, but I don’t see any obligation to have it.Zinoviev Letter said:
I don’t know if it’s written down in some Cycling Ireland rule book, but every champions jersey I can think of had the shamrock on the front in some form.Leinster said:Is that written down anywhere? I know Nico had it in the past, but I don’t see any obligation to have it.Zinoviev Letter said:
I don’t think it’s a great jersey, but I’m not sure that a shamrock or two would rescue that.
That’s me told! I bow to your superior internetting.The shamrock is always there.

Italian Champion RR 2017 - 2018 Jersey
Geee guys, you are pretty harsh, compared to some horrible national jerseys we have been seing lately this is classy, sober, elegant. The red on the jersey is a bit bigger to give more overall balance with the black legs when standin, but from atop with the back curving the jersey will look really good. honestly a very solid design. We could only wish for the italian jersey to have a similar problem !Jancouver said:
Honestly the "bad" there.. This a really solid national champ jersey.Netserk said:Well, except for Gilbert's red shorts, this is about as 'bad' as it can get for a Belgium champion's jersey. That's the benefit of a national federation with proper standards. Even RadioShack Leotard had to do a proper one! As such, we should have higher standards as well.
