After having announced three new sponsors over the last weeks, Nutnose.com, à Bloc Beer, and Il Magistrale Cycling Coffee, Team WIT made their official 2017 kit public. A couple of months ago, the team called upon the Instagram community to submit their designs. The contest turned out to be a big succes with loads of people sending in their ideas for a new kit. The winner of the contest, Eric Roelen, came with a design on which the official 2017 kit is based. Team Wit will start the season with the opening of the NL Crit Series on April 2 in Rijswijk. The first big goal of the team is RHC Brooklyn No.10 on the 29th of April. Team Wit consists of Bram Linnartz, Cornelius Kersten, Jelmer Broekstra, and Olaf Wit. The manager of the team is Jan-Willem Blok, who together with Olaf Wit and others, is also responsible for the organisation of the NL Crit Series.

This beautiful simple and fresh looking design is the one we picked! @deroelen is the maker. CONGRATULATIONS! We love how it's simple and traditional but also has the hand painting all over it. We love its patterns and colors. About the latter: we'll probably tweak a little (with help of Erik Roelen) because our bikes are green. Eric, thank you very much for this great design, @verge_sport_nederland will make you a jersey of it! We'll be in touch to talk about the details. Thanks again to all of you for the fun and creativity. 🙏 Also huge thanks to @verge_sport_nederland for being willing to support this idea. It's a very nice way to start our collaboration. #teamwitkitcontest
