Colombian women's cycling team causes stir with unfortunate 'naked' jersey design

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.
