Team’s ‘naked’ kit is ‘unacceptable’

A cycling team’s kit which made the female riders appear to look naked has been described as “unacceptable”.

The Colombian team’s outfit for a race in Italy had what seemed to be a skin-coloured fabric around their waist and hips.

Brian Cookson said: 

“To the many who have raised the issue of a certain women’s team kit, we are on the case.

“It is unacceptable by any standard of decency.”

A photo of the six IDRD-Bogota Humana-San Mateo-Solgar cyclists – shown above with a slight alteration – was taken at the Giro della Toscana in Tuscany and caused controversy when shared on social media at the weekend.

However, reports in Colombia have suggested the kit was designed by one of the female riders and has been worn for several months.

The mainly red and yellow outfit appears to be largely ordinary from the midriff up, with the exception of what looks like a flesh-coloured waistband across the torso.
