The best bit of the national road championships week  - alongside the racing - is finding out who will be wearing their nation's colours on their jerseys for the next year. With the Tour de France and the Tour de France Femmes just around the corner, kit suppliers will be working overtime to have new jerseys ready for those lucky riders who get to wear different colours for the next 12 months.

There are teams that go all out for their national champions, like Groupama-FDJ for example, and there are some that begrudgingly attach some national colours to the trade kit, such as UAE Team Emirates, but all new jerseys are fun, right?
