    What are the colors for the winner of the world championship?

    I'm talking about the cycling world championship. What are the colors and in what order are they top to bottom? Also where can I find stickers of the colors?

    I can't help you with the sticker part of your question, but the colors go like this:

    blue
    red
    black
    yellow
    green

    You can see them HERE

    Velo, thanks. Which of the 3 are you?

    I gather the colors are the same and they are in the same order, regardless of gender?

    Don't the colors represent the colors of all the countries in the world that compete in cycling? Is there any reason the order is what it is?

    These are the same colors as of the five olympic rings. At least one of these colors are found on a flag of any country.
    Prepare for the worst - that way any surprise will be a pleasant one.

    LoL, nice one N_C. I'm not quite old enough to get myself one of those nice jerseys. I have to sit through another season until I get the chance.

    I don't know any of the details about the order of the colors.

    One of the jerseys featured in the link is for, get this- World Champion (small countries). Now help me out here; even if you are from a small country, does it not still belong to what we refer to as the world???!!?

    Although they still exist in the world, I am certain it was made to give a little exposure and fairness to the smaller countries whose population doesn't allow for the the same number of competitive cyclists as say France, Italy, Germany, US, etc.

    Belgium is s small country. But they get to play with the big boys.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    Possiblly someplace like Liechtenstein would qualify with a mere 33,000 "inhabitants".

    Well, it may actually be, but you already know who owns that
    jersey.
