We're beginning to get a better glimpse of the jerseys we'll come to get used to searching for in the pro peloton in 2012. Another one emerged today. The new Champion System team ("Asia's first pro continental team") pulled the curtain on its look, along with a list of sponsors.
Here's the Champion System team's official release:
Champion System Reveals Jersey, Sponsors
Hong Kong SAR – The Champion System Pro Cycling Team has revealed its 2012 jersey while announcing supporting sponsors for Asia’s first Pro Continental team.
The new jersey design features Champion System’s company colors of navy blue and orange on a white background. Riders will compete in both the Champion System Tech short sleeve jerseys and the Elite short sleeve jersey, which is Champion System’s most aerodynamic and form-fitting jersey.
Champion System Vice President of Sales and Marketing Charlie Issendorf said the team will have a full arsenal of Champion System custom technical apparel at its disposal, both on and off the bike.
"As the only cycling clothing manufacturer to be the title sponsor of a Professional Continental team, we wanted to showcase our state-of-the-art printing and design expertise to offer technical garments that elite riders demand to perform at their best," Issendorf said. "The Champion System Pro Cycling Team will be our rolling R&D department and will play a key role in developing new products for our loyal customers."

In keeping with Champion System’s core philosophy, the team has chosen to partner with brands that also have a reputation for performance, function and style in their products. In addition to the announcement earlier this week that the Champion System Pro Cycling Team will be competing on Fuji bicycles, the team will also be supported by:
Selle Italia (saddles)
Oval Concepts (bars and stems)
