The awkwardly designed Colombian women's cycling team uniform is causing an uproar. The unusual suits have a wide beige panel that extends from mid-torso to upper thigh, giving the appearance of exposed skin in what is typically a private area. While the flesh-like panels were opaque, the nude color is certainly eye-catching, causing a double take.
Attendees at last Friday's Instituto Distrital de Recreacion y Deporte event in Italy had a strong negative reaction to them, to the extent that the President of the Union Cycliste Internationale Brian Cookson released a statement via Twitter calling the kits "unacceptable by any standard of decency." The Colombian women's cycling team outfits had attendees calling for a redesign as well.
