World Championships: Which is the best national jersey? - Poll

The UCI Road World Championships are one of the few occasions elite cyclists swap out their trade team jerseys for their national colours, a special occasion even for some of the most successful cyclists in the sport.

Below we take a look at some of the best jerseys from as far back as 1986 to some from more recent editions.

Many nations will retain an iconic design year-on-year, with Belgium's Driekleur tricot rarely moving away from the baby blue main body.
