A new season has arrived! We've already spotted some very nice national championship jerseys on the profile pictures that were send in by teams from all over the world and through the live images from Down Under.Still, like every year, it is always a bit of a search at the start of the new season. Which rider rides with which team? Where does my favorite rider ride this year? What does the kit of my favorite team look like? One group of riders are still very recognizable: the national champions. We were curious: what do the national championship-jerseys look like this season and which teams have done their best to respect the nations flag of their national champions?

Below you will find an overview of all national champions who can be seen in the peloton in (the first half of) 2023. Where possible, we've included a photo of the rider in his new jersey, so you can choose which national champion jersey you like best!
