Here’s a glimpse of the cycling kits that will be worn by Canada and the USA teams at the London 2012 Olympic Games which officially start in three days.

USA. The road, track, and mountain bike kits were designed by SKINS while Nike teamed up with freestyle legend Bob Haro to create the BMX collection.
Featuring “USA” across the chest, vertical red and white stripes, and columns of stars on a dark blue backdrop, the SKINS jersey offers a clean, retro look – “stars and bars” design is reminiscent of the U.S. kits from the 1984 Olympics.
Inspired by the sport’s roots, the BMX kit is a flashback to the 1970’s when kids raced Southern California dirt tracks in three-quarter sleeved baseball tees. The jersey’s rugged design features a white body, navy sleeves, “USA,” and an eagle whose red outline grips the handlebars of a BMX bike. The kits were custom fitted for each individual BMX team member.
