Favourite Olympic cycling team kit?

Unpatriotic, but mine is the Belgian's.  Any other team kit that you admire from a purely asthetic point of view?

Nations with tri-colour flags probably have the best source material! :)

Too much white overall (Italy, WTF?) and the British team kit looks like a military uniform, all dark blue with the little union flag on the sleeve.  :sick:

Ukraine is pretty cool, with the yellow of the flag turned into stylised wheat, and I like the font of the Russia kit.

After a slow start I've come to quite like the British kit. Stylish yet understated, just like me. I'm almost persuaded to buy a cycling jersey, purely as a memento you understand...

Rhys the whole design is based around the union flag!

It reminds me of the old RAF roundel: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RAF_Type_A_Roundel.svg
