2021 Pro Cycling Kits - Hot Or Not? | GCN Racing News Show

Many professional cycling teams use the new year to release their new cycling jersey and kit designs for the upcoming race season, and it has become custom here at GCN to rate them "Hot or Not" each January. But this year, we've been able to get YOU involved, and we announce the definitive list of WorldTour team kits from the worst looking to the best, most iconic design from the men's and women's peloton as voted for on the GCN App. We also round up the cyclocross national championships that were allowed to take place and the latest transfer news.

      Quick explanation about the Wanty-Gobert shirt: the sheer amount of sponsors they have combined with UCI rules regarding mandatory white spaces created a designers nightmare.

      Have a good idea for a video. Will a heavier cyclist freewheel faster downhill. Can you do a downhill freewheel with and without 15kg extra weight. Maybe put it in a backpack.

    Truthfully, tho, Grégory Baugé at 90% is still better than 99% of his competitors at 100%. And better than 100% of the rest of us. Sad that he missed out on one last chance at the Olympics.

    For me, HOT if there are fewer than 10 sponsor logos, NOT if there are. If the logos are on white, even worse.

    Your methodology is flawed. The highest percentage of 'hot' votes isn't telling us what kit people think is best, just which kit the fewest people dislike. It's basically what kit is the least polarizing.

    This has without a doubt been the single greatest GCN video for me. Now I know for a fact, that my taste differs all together from you Brits'. I disagreed with almost every single HOT or NOT from Si and Dan. Given the nation's affection for flowered wallpaper I actually already ought to have known... Anyway, thanks for making a fairly new (a year or so) rider certain of trusting his own taste - now also in cycling kits ;-)

    Why would Froomey go to the US, the first world country with the worse rates of COVID? California hospitals are overwhelmed with COVID patients. But I guess access to the best doping doctors are in California. Every US age grouper with a few $$$ to get "anti aging" hormone treatment knows that. Why ride upgrades when you can buy upgrades?

    GCN kit wins the best taste and hotness for 2021... never the less the EF, Canyon, and Qubeka still GCN make a solid statement on design and style, like Jumbo and Ineos there is my top 3 men's kit, as for woman Blind guess Canyon will be great and Liv, stop the count.

    I feel like that Bike Exchange kit was designed to fit with the bikes. I don't mean the colors are the same, but as though they are literally two pieces of a puzzle that must be fit together. It's okay on its own, but it's like there is a harmony with the bikes that make it better. Most bikes are just the colors of the team, but this one seems like an extension of it. Not saying it's the best, but it definitely seems to be designed together as opposed to just slapping the colors on the bikes.

      As a private and for profit company, I believe they are allowed to set the rules for who can participate. If you don't agree with the rules, you can leave or wait to get off and go to one of the thousands of other, much less successful, media companies.

    The thing about being a designer is that you have to do what the client tells you. If a team has 20 sponsors and all of them need to be put on the kit, you get a shit design. The only reason why they had all the kits looking so nice on their IG is because they had full control over it. Give your artist more freedom and you'll get nicer things
