- Team Kit – blimey
I don’t actually think it looks all that flattering or ‘sexy’ TBH.
That aside it really doesn’t help the status or image of women’s cycling does it? I can’t really believe that it got in front of press photographers…
The main sponsors were apparently the columbian ministry for sport and the city of Bogota, So I’m sure we all now think of Colombia as an enlightened and forward thinking country…Posted 5 years ago
That’s also been shown to be a photo issue as the kit’s not new and looks fine (well, at least not indecent) the rest of the time.
It’s actually gold as it has been for a couple of years apparently and one of the (female) riders designed it…

It was designed by one of the Team, she’s done a few of thier kits in the past, the others look “normal”.
I’m not keen, think it rather dergrading and unsuitable, the material used (and that’s the main issue when photographing apparently) looks bloomin horrid and fold/creases in the wrong place.
Seriously, they should have known better. 🙄Posted 5 years ago
But they’ve been riding it for months without issue…
My initial reaction was the same as most – a combination of sniggering and disappointment that women’s cycling seemed to be deliberately portraying it in that way.
It seems that it is just a poor design decision that in some circumstances looks bad. Same as white shorts (be it men or women…)Posted 5 years agoHounsMember
I really don’t notice it/see what the fuss is about. They don’t look naked. Someone posted it to my FB yesterday and it took me ages to see what it was I was meant to be looking at
And all those going on about it, you don’t see them commenting on ‘that’ men’s (Swiss?) team line up photo that pops up every so oftenPosted 5 years agostumpy01Member
I don’t think it was intentionally meant to look like naked flesh, and probably loks different in ‘real life’ to the photo.
Here is an old photo of the Men’s kit if you haven’t seen it already….
Perhaps it’s just a genuine mistake/misjudgement in terms of colour choice, rather than a specific attempt to degrade women??Posted 5 years ago
