Cycling's governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), has issued its official statement regarding the controversial kit design for the Colombian IDRD-Bogota Humana-San Mateo-Solgar team that has caused a stir on social media.

Now the UCI has stepped in after its president Brian Cookson commented on Twitter that "it is unacceptable by any standard of decency".
