Double take: Women's riding team debut 'naked jersey'

KIT reveals for women's cycling competitions in Italy are not usually highly-watched affairs - but a Colombian team this weekend managed to cause excitement with what seemed to be a very revealing outfit.

The otherwise conservative kit features a large patch of flesh coloured cloth across the women's lower torsos and groins, giving the impression of a cut-out revealing bare flesh.

The Colombian team - which is backed by the South American country's ministry of sport and is sponsored by the capital city of Bogota - were wearing the outfit to take part in a cycling competition in Italy.

The outfit for non-cyclists appeared not to feature the design - which meant that only the women who work as part of the team seemed to be sporting it.
 

 

The team joins other recent high-profile sports kit mishaps, including the Scottish team at this summer's Commonwealth games.

The fuchsia, navy and tartan pattern came in for criticism from fans.
 


The Australian team's kit was also mocked during the Commonwealth games, with Glasgow swimwear designed by Speedo that was criticised for drawing inappropriate attention to the crotch area.
 

A Spanish football team also unveiled its tuxedo-style kit this summer.

The home kit worn this season by Spanish third-tier side Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa comes with a mock bow-tie and buttons.
