Olympic cycling kits: the best and worst jerseys from Rio

We round up the best and the worst of the Olympic cycling kits that we'll see on the road in the next few days.

First up man of the moment Chris Froome sporting Team GB’s red, white, and blue kit with matching decals on his Pinarello Dogma F8.

No point changing a winning combo with Belgium’s sky blue kit. Extra marks for the matching helmet and socks.

Looking the road on my map. #rio

Team Colombia bravely going for the white shorts. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain.

Dan Martin and Nicholas Roche with one of the more boring kits that we’ll see at the weekend.

But saying that, they both have pretty cool bikes

Namibia’s Dan Craven (left) showing off his rather stylish Rapha kit.

We’re assuming Australia’s kit looks more green and gold than blue and gold in the flesh.

The only non-cycling kit here, Australia’s blazers for the opening ceremony deserve a special mention.

Denmark’s Jakob Fuglsang sporting our favourite Olympic cycling kit.

Team Switzerland keeping it simple and keeping it Assos.

The Italians have moved away from their traditional blue kit.

Kudos to Iris Slappendel for managing to combine her professional racing for United Healthcare with being able to design a kit that gets Dutch orange working with the country’s red, white, and blue flag.

Ramunas Navardauskas and Ignatas Konovalovas of Lithuania sporting one of the brighter kits in the Olympic peloton.

Julian Alaphillipe managing to combine his blue French kit and orange Specialized bike surprisingly well.

As for the Spanish, it’s hard to really know where to start…

Without wishing to disrespect the jerseys (or Taylor Phinney’s tache) our favourite part of Team USA’s kit are those retro black shorts.
