White arm warmers and leg warmers complete the look


While Peter Sagan has gone for tasteful black shorts as part of his new world champion’s kit, Adam Blythe has taken a very different direction with his British champion’s kit.

Blythe has plumped for white shorts, a decision that might make him look the part now, but might not seem quite as wise when it inevitably chucks it down at some early season Belgian semi-classic.

As well as those shorts, Blythe, who will be riding Aqua Blue Sport in 2017, has gone for matching white arm warmers and leg warmers, a white Giro Synthe helmet and white Rapha sunglasses, with a spot of colour being added to the outfit by some rather eye-catching Nike shoes.

Unfortunately for Blythe, he doesn’t yet have a custom red, white, and blue bike to go with his Vermarc kit, instead riding a team issue Ridley Noah with Knight 95 deep section wheels.
