The good, the bad and the ugly: Cycling kits of Rio 2016

A run down of the good and not so good looking cycling kits due to hit the roads of Rio this weekend.

Bold, with colours that kind of don't match. The Namibia kit is certainly very 'in right now'.

The more we look, the more we love (Danish cycling kit, as well as Jakob Fuglsang).

A break from tradition for Italy, with a white background to the Tricolore.

The famous yellow and green of Australia. Sorry, blue? What did Sweden have to say about this?

Colombia. If Esteban Chaves is happy, so are we...

Hard to mix the Dutch Driekleur with the famous Oranje, but Bioracer have done a fine job here with the Dutch kit.

Team GB. 'It was fine until the crap cartoon of a lion.' - anon, Cyclist office.

It's always been easier to establish a colour theme with Spain than it has been a clear team leader.

Swiss track team kit. At least it's Assos.

Americans and baseball jerseys - are the two inseperable? We love it really though. U.S.A! U.S.A!

And finally...if it aint broke, don't try and fix it. Belgian baby blue, baby.

Watch this space for kits from Korea, New Zealand and Japan, which are always tasty but haven't yet been spotted online.
