Seriously, what was the designer thinking?

A tweet by a researcher for a sports website on September 13 set in motion what was to be a snowballing controversy within hours. Hilary Evans, whose tweet has been retweeted over 10,000 times by now, showed the strange uniforms worn by the Colombia women's cycling team."I'm no fashion expert but even I know that the Colombia women's cycling team kit seen here is a genuine disaster," Evans stated, tweeting from the handle @OlympicStatman.The team, which is sponsored by the city government of Bogota, is seen wearing a white and flesh coloured suit with the nude colour tone unfortunately covering the lower part of the women's torsos making them appear partly naked.
