New Jerseys - 2022 Season - TeamKits-Maillots-Tricots-Tenues

But surely only if it fit the brand-image. And surely no team maintaned the same sponsor, yet wildly changed their kits from year to year; they'd just keep the same kind of crazy.

And meanwhile, the Andy Schleck team were forced to change their kit, because three other teams later went and designed very similar looking kits!


It's ridiculous since AS already had the design this season and won't be riding (many) WWT races unlike the others.
Their new jerseys are still prettier than the UAE W's though.

 
I didn't know that the UCI reserved the right to tell a team that their kit is unacceptable because of similarity to another kit. They have allowed eg Movistar and Astana to be very similar, or to have many teams in dark blue at once. Certainly seems perverse that the team who had the kit first are told to change.
For what it's worth, I have just sent an email to UCI questioning their decision, asking them to reconsider it, or at least apologise to AS team or offer financial compensation. Their decision lacks any logic and seems entirely arbitrary.

Yea, but those teams were probably big enough to fight back. Certainly doesn't feel coincidental that they've gone after the little guy in the women's cycling colour clash conflict but not asked any of the major teams that are actually likely to be competing with each other in televised races to change their kits.
 
Minutes before the photoshoot, they tore the jersey and they had to fix it by themselves because the seamstress had already gone home. Now they will have to ride like that the entire year.

True story.
Whovever did the emergancy sewing can't have had the best eye. It appears both thumbs have also been sewn to the jersey!

It's different from their past designs and I quite like it.

Someone put on some off-season pounds. Happens to us all.


I have no idea how this is inspired by "us college baseball" but it's a sharp look. The squares remind me of the EF Giro kit which I liked a lot.

I've said for a while that teams should have an alternate jersey; or use their training jersey. It can't be that hard to come up with a system to decide who wears what, and where.
Failing that, different coloured helmets, so recognising a team/rider is easier. It really shouldn't be hard to do......

Sure, that'd work well enough for situations where a team's regular kit is similar to the leader's jersey in a race - like Jumbo-Visma in the Tour - but what about cases like the Great Beachy Fade Kerfuffle? (The people at CyclingTips came up with that, I can't claim credit) That's three teams, all with very similar design, that are frequently going to be racing against each other. Who should be allowed to wear the regular kit? Should they take turns?

For a boring jersey, I've actually quite liked Bora's over the years (2018-2020). The red patch is not of much use, as I doubt it will be visible with race numbers on top of it. I think the best thing to say about it is that the arms are easy to recognise.
