Adam Blythe's national champion jersey is bizarre. If not for the shorts you wouldn't know he was a Tinkoff rider from the front, and then on the back is a big Sky logo. It seems very last-minute.

Have you got a picture? :)
I have shitty quality pics from the front and back. But actually I realise now I should cut him some slack. He's riding for the national team rather than Tinkoff, so perhaps the Tinkoff national champs jersey will be better. Anyway:

I don't have much confidence, it's taking them way too long to come up with a design. Seems they can't come to an agreement with the British federation.

I agree, but at least the Addidas/Sky branding relates to the national team. When I first saw it, I thought Tinkoff were so dysfunctional he'd had to borrow one from Sky.

While incompetence from Tinkoff should never surprise me, that is truly mind-boggling. There is no designing to do. The British federation lays out the design in excruciating detail, and it's got to look exactly that way. Literally no other team has had trouble with that. They're really, really not going to be able to *** around with a few stripes like with the rest. It has to be red and blue stripes on a white jersey - just like the picture.
 
I don't get tinkoff's problem. Blythe doesn't even ride the important races, the only time I saw him this season was during the nationals.

It's sagan's jersey but with less stripes and different colors. How hard can it be?!

Not even Movistar. They are able to conform with the BC rules/regs set in place for the national jersey that Dowsett wears in the ITT's.

Simple, classy, stylish. Love it.
Can't we agree? I think that's awful! :lol:
Theres something seriously wrong with one of us then.
I think it's okay, but it feels a bit early 2000s. In fact here's the 2004 Olympic kit: http://res.cloudinary.com/corporate-olympics-com-au/image/upload/fl_keep_iptc,c_fit,w_460/52568528_23D30510-883E-11E5-A660005056A37760.jpg

Green and gold aren't great colours to do stuff with, though. I would consider emphasising the green more than the gold. Something like the Orica Bike Exchange kit with green in place of the blue would be the least offensive to my eyes.

Blythe was riding for team GB, hence the weird team sky national top with Tinkoff shorts.
