    My wild guess is it will be almost solid green (with possibly a little shamrock on it somewhere) ;)

    Nah, it should be black with a little creamy head on top.

    I thought Hoy's bike looked fairly excellent though :)

    Thought I'd take a day to mull on it instead of making a snap decision.

    For me I like it. Understated and I like the way the red is incorporated in the sock, shoes and neck lines.

    Looks far far better than the 2008 kit and also better than monstrosity current BC kit.

    I actually don't mind it either.

    Agreed, the cycling kit doesn't quite work with the flag thing. Should have put some of the white and blue diagonal on the front of the left leg to increase the effect of the flag.

    It's middlin' to fair considering that Stella's only using this as a trial run for the Scottish Olympic Team in 2016.

    Will you be wearing the Irish kit for your event? Do you not wear the WC jersey?

    I think the British olympic kit is quite smart. No need for big national flags stamped on chest every time eh

    actually I quite like it too , but navy blue has always been my favourite colour :lol:

    ok Stella could have added a splash more red on some of the kits, but it would have looked out of place I think given how some of them use the red, Im sure had it not been a "designer" kit no-one would have really much complained at all. I mean do people actually remember previous olympic kits, Beijing was that super white affair, about as much red on that as there was this one, other kits have been even bluer, Barcelona is about the only one I can remember they tried to do a union flag on and that was very 90's.

    I dont like it, but that is not important as I am from Australia and our athletes wont be looking back at who is chasing them lol

    Very dissapiinting, The major countries that are going to be involved in medals should have to have easily identifiable uniforms, in a bunch sprint how are you going to know which cyclist is which? I want to be able to see who it is from a helicopter view without difficulty. I want union jacks, stars and stripes etc to assist with viewing the games.
