Fashion Police (Part Two)

Coordinated team colours were a great (if somewhat obvious) innovation. Trying to do it on the cheap by getting the riders to wear lycra suits on top of their leathers/kevlars was not such a great idea...

The year is 1998 and pictured above is a young Jason Crump, wearing a rather hideous purple and yellow Oxford suit, complete with leopard (or cheetah to be exact) skin detailing.

Mercifully everyone quickly realised this would make the sport an even bigger laughing stock than it already was and they shelled out for some proper team kevlar suits.
