Why?
Cos 'you didn't earn the right', but mostly it's because cyclists are wankers imo. As much as I love the sport, SOME of the snobbery in cycling drives me mad.

It is seen by some as disrespectful. You didnt earn it sort of thing. Wear what you want who gives a shite.

But if I bought it then why shouldn't I have the right to wear it? Why do these teams sell replicas of the jersey?

Wearing a Sky top is akin to wearing a Team GB top as far as I can see

Is wearing a Liverpool or United top akin to wearing an England top?
I have so many questions.

Might just be a personal observation, but to be crude, seems to be people of the Unionist persuasion that wear them in NI. I could be totally wrong but its something I've picked up on - the numbers are few & far between and also dwindling as Sky are now team Ineos.

No doubt about it Sky were seen as a Brit team. Plenty that i work with expressed an interest in the TDF for example when Sky were dominant now no interest. Their interest was in the GB competitors not the sport itself.
