The USA Pro Cycling Challenge is coming to town. You have probably become familiar with the team jerseys while watching the Tour of California or the Tour de France on TV, but there are a few Continental or Development teams that will be at the race that I was not familiar with. So in my own curiosity I have compiled the jerseys. Time to review which 17 teams will be riding in the Colorado tour and what they will be wearing so we can all quickly identify our favorite riders.
Cadel Evan's (BMC) rainbow striped armbands - he was the previous World Champion
Frank Schleck (Leopard Trek) is the current Luxembourg Road National Champion

Cycling Champions wear their jersey in the discipline they won only. Time Trial Champions wear their skinsuits during the TT only (individual and team), Road Champions wear their jerseys on the road only, not during ITTs. Former champions wear stripes on their jersey sleeves or collars for the remainder of their careers.
