While Dutch champion Ramon Sinkeldam had to make do with some tiny red, white and blue stripes across the front of his Team Sunweb jersey, Warbasse’s stars and stripes are suitably loud and brash, with Aqua Blue’s branding subtly integrated into the design.
Warbasse is racing in the kit for the first time at the Vuelta a Burgos this week, coming home in 36th place on Tuesday’s opening stage as he made his comeback in his first racing appearance since winning the national championship at the end of June.
Despite only having been in existence since the start of the year, Aqua Blue Sport have already established a strong reputation when it comes to designing national champions’ jersey, providing Adam Blythe with a simple put stylish British champion’s jersey at the start of the year, including the option for either white or black shorts.
