The Union also contacted the team directly, the BBC reported, reminding them “of their responsibilities."
In an interview with the cycling website, Cycling Inquistion, Rojas explained the reason for the patch of gold (or nude). “It comes from our sponsors,” she said. “It’s the primary color used by Solgar, a company that makes vitamins, and is also similar to the one used by San Mateo University, another one of our sponsors.”
At the press conference, Rojas was defiant, saying "We wear our uniform with pride, and we are not considering changing it.”
She added, "We have to make the most of this moment, however it came to be. In the end, our reason for training, for racing and for every pedal stroke is to make our families proud, and to represent our city and Colombia with pride."
The team next races on Sunday at the 2014 UCI road racing world championships start on Sunda in Ponferrada, Spain.http://latino.foxnews.com/
