Team jersey regs

So my son who is a cat 3 rider has changed his first claim club, but will not have any new club kit for a few weeks. Trying to figure out whether the tech regs require him to wear a plain jersey, his old club jersey (where he is still a member and on good terms) or whether neither of these are acceptable.

Does anybody know the answer or how to find the answer please?

    At local races (regional level) plain kit should be fine though if he's racing with a new team that has lots of guys in those same races, it's better for him to borrow a jersey then to race as part of a team but "undercover" (from a goodwill from others in the bunch point of view). No comm will care but riders might complain if he's in plain kit but riding for a team with a presence and influence in the race.

    Shouldn't really be doing any National level races without proper kit, i.e., the BC-approved 2014 design for his new team.

    Pretty sure if a Cat3 needs club kit. Only 4ths don't have to. Have a word with the comm however and it shouldn't be an issue.

    Yes both the above - it's one of those rules that most comms will show a little common sense in enforcing - if racing with club mates though I would try and borrow a jersey.

  • Thanks everybody, that is exactly what I thought (but was not confident enough to act on!) and we have now arranged to borrow a jersey.
