WORST, Has to go to RSNT, specially Busche's American champion one, NO thought into it and not even the proper flag

Best, Well there are two i like the look of

1, Cav's Sky world champion one, will enjoy seeing it on a British rider in a British team

2, Saxobank, loving the eagle on it, SORRY, i could only find a pic of Alberto in it

Nice to see Bertie's keeping his pecker up...

BTW, Italian fans will have a field day with that jersey, given one of the nicknames in the language for the old John Thomas (uccello = bird, don't ask me why)  26

An at least the rsn one wasn't this. In case you're wondering, yes I do photoshop kit onto riders just to see how it would look:

I did this when it was still LEOPARD SCHLECK, ahead of the times, but I can't prove it

I think the Radio Shack Nissan Leopard Livestrong Craft Tinky Winky Dipsy La La Po Trek jersey looks pretty smart this year.

Farnese Vini's is the best for those that dont want to have to use a seperate Hi-viz when they are cycling:

Team Net App have a very "corporate" looking kit. I'm not sure what it is, I think it reminds me of my first attempts at using powerpoint:

I would add Lotto-Belisol to the worst, but i still think RSNT is worse, but the Harrods kit on that site isn't all that bad, at least you'd be seen  19

Rock Racing, a loveable band of lunatics, here are the teams offerings for 2012:

They have kit and bikes but I dont think they have any riders.

Or a licence.

Garmin wins this year, as they did last year. Geox's kit would've been quite cool this year judging by the pics.

I hope Astana are going to be wearing their David Bowie style silver skinsuits again.

Brilliantly nuts.

The Columbia kit looks pretty smart too.
