what were they thinkingPosted 7 years ago
crumbs, that’s … ummm … awkward … 🙂Posted 7 years ago
Just makes a joke of women’s cycling, just what it doesn’t need. Hope the UCI step in.Posted 7 years ago
ay caramba!Posted 7 years ago
What does the back look like ?Posted 7 years ago
Well, they’ve certainly got some publicity for their sponsors.Posted 7 years ago
Looks very smoothPosted 7 years ago
No one will remember the sponsors!Posted 7 years ago
Is it Veet?Posted 7 years ago
What sponsors? I didn’t see anyPosted 7 years ago
Oh dear.Posted 7 years ago
The flesh colour is off putting, but I am more worried about the lady on the left with 3 arms….Posted 7 years ago
Looks very smooth
I think you’ve got your South American countries confused. They’re from Colombia.Posted 7 years ago
I like to think I’m broad minded and occassionally inappropriate, but that is truly unpleasant.Posted 7 years ago
😕Posted 7 years ago
That’s a joke, surely?Posted 7 years ago
I follow Brian Cookson on twitter, there have been complaints and he tweeted today that the UCI were going to talk to the team and that he thought it highly inappropriatePosted 7 years ago
Brian Cookson has posted on twitter they are on the case….. stating its unacceptable by any standard of decency, fair enough i would say given what the UCI are tying to do with women’s cycling……Posted 7 years ago
Link anyone?Posted 7 years ago
Ahhhhhhhhhh now I see iPhone has now caught up and shown the pic. Really not sure about the red arm yellow arm thing , maybe should have gone with two yellow arms . Apart from that it looks dandy!Posted 7 years ago
That’s one way to get publicity I guess!Posted 7 years ago

Nah, that is the bloke on the right, he has a looooong arm.Posted 7 years ago
Another meaning to the phrase “Full Kit W****r”?Posted 7 years ago
Well, they’ve certainly got some

FIFYPosted 7 years ago
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 7 years ago
that’s **** ace!! 🙂Posted 7 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…
Posted 7 years ago
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 7 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 7 years ago
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 7 years ago
I’ve looked loads and can’t see what everyone else is seeing 😕
But then I’m colour blind so I’m hoping that’s the issue and not my stupidity!
It is a bit strange that the lady on the left has 3 arms though.Posted 7 years ago

Polish IIRC er…. 🙂
That kit doesn’t appear designed to look like nude flesh though, it’s just maybe a little tight/thin and has a poor colour choice…Posted 7 years ago
Any chance of seeing what the rears are like?Posted 7 years ago
Is GIS broken?Posted 7 years ago
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 7 years ago
If that could use that design principle and make a builders arse type jersey/shorts combo they’d be onto a winner I thinkPosted 7 years ago
Typical mainstream media and cycling stories. That ‘men’s team’ kit is a completely different team from a couple of years ago 🙄
In fact they also had/have a women’s teamPosted 7 years ago
