great britain, team kit, 2013

British Cycling's national riders will roll out in a new kit in 2013, the first major change to the strip in years.

A picture of what looks like the new Great Britain jersey was found posted on a bike shop's Facebook page, and is a major departure from the current kit that is predominantly red, white and blue.

The jersey we found online is still made by Adidas and predominantly white, with the British union flag across the stomach - although this appears to be upside down. The name Sky is positioned on the chest and down the sides in black panels, and the Adidas three stripe runs down the arm. Pictures of the shorts weren't posted.

The new kit's first outing will be the track world cup in Mexico, in mid January and then worn again at the world track championships in February. We should find out if this is the jersey in early January.

Editor of Cycling Weekly magazine, Simon has been working at the title since 2001. He fell in love with cycling when channel surfing in 1989 and happening across the greatest ever edition of the Tour de France. He's been a Greg LeMond fan ever since. He started racing in 1995 when moving to university in North Wales gave him more time to train and some amazing roads to train on. He raced domestically for several years, riding everything from Surrey leagues to time trials, track and even a few Premier Calendars. In 2000 he spent one season racing in Belgium with the Kingsnorth International Wheelers. 

Since working for Cycling Weekly he has written product reviews, fitness features, pro interviews, race coverage and news. He has covered the Tour de France more times than he can remember along with two Olympic Games and many other international and UK domestic races. He can still be seen at his club's evening races through the summer but he still hasn't completed the CW5000 challenge!
