A friend of mine once wore an old genuine World Champion's jersey as a spectator to a cyclo-cross race in Belgium. It was under his jacket etc. but he got a right b*ll*cking from a local official for wearing it as he wasn't an ex-WC himself.
I agree with that Nedly
Geoffrey Butlers still sell a 'replica' (Lampre) rainbow jersey, & surely something like that should be sacrosanct!

Yes, I do realise that most of us can distinguish between the real claimant on the jersey & the 'lookalike'
If you haven't earned the right to wear a Champions jersey you shouldn't wear one.
There was a 'kerfuffle' a while ago as Jody Crewford was wearing his National Cyclo-Cross Champions jersey whilst training on the road
