    Worst national champion jersey yet for US

    Just saw this, and I actually had to look to see if she really won the US national championships. In what way does this represent our flag? She could easily pass for a Luxembourger with those colors, but maybe Trek needs to look at Old Glory's colors one more time. Do they make good bikes BTW?



    And yes, I konw this isnt the flag of Luxembourg, but it is the one you will see Luxembourgers flying.

    Cyclists really need to learn a little Rule #5.

    Christ, she doesn't look very happy does she?. I wonder if it's because she realizes she has to wear that jersey for a year.

    You had to look up Katie Compton to see if she'd actually won Nats?!?
    Dood- you must not follow CX at all- this is like her 8th consecutive National Championship.


    But I hear ya- I gotta say though, the other pic I saw at least had the colors right;

    No...I love KFC. I knew she won, just a little tounge in cheek. She looks pissed because she got beat in a sprint today at the first round of the World Cup. Flat out beat too.

    She's not using that frame though, she has a custom painted, but more importantly, custom geometry alloy frame. Trek makes her alloy frames until the geometry is dialed in.

    I don't know what it is, but sometimes it looks powder blue and sometimes it looks brighter "correct". Whatever bike she races that weekend, typically two, sometimes three hangs out at our shop in Kansas City. The team mechanic works at our shop. The colors on her frames are correct. I haven't seen her kit in person.

    Trek does not make good US Champion jersies.

    The incoming NCNCA president doesn't particularly like the 2012 design either. I expect something more traditional next year and hope that I can successfully defend my title(s). While I'm sidetracking this thread with California business, I might as well post the preliminary schedule (if you haven't seen it):

    I've seen sexier male cyclists, and I'm straight.

    I'd rather bang a Schleck bag of bones than that.

    Correct me if I'm wrong: I think that's a Garry Fisher she's holding, just can't pin point which one.

    I like Trek bikes but their price tag is not rider friendly.

    Is this thread further proof that most pro cycling discussion, other than doping, is about how good or bad jerseys look?

    LOL - I think not. Tinkov's arrival has put an end to that motif I think (I hope so, the Russian Eagle is double-headed!).

    Something more ala Captain America I think - lots of stars and strippers...er stripes.
