I think just for the 6days. Keisse and O'Shea are riding as Team OmegaPharma (NB no Quickstep on the jersey, other than by virtue of the #OPQS hastag).

I actually thought riders just rode with kits from whatever team they're on...
Pretty sure I've seen pictures of Mørkøv-Rasmussen, where Michael wore Saxo kit and Alex HTC...

Oh...
That's a national kit, though (Pair Number 7?), so what would you do if it's two guys from different teams and different countries?

The OPQS jersey - it's definitely not their 2013 jersey.

1st, with some logic, they would not reveal the jersey that early.

2nd, there's not a sign of ''Quickstep'' on the front. They are co-sponsors and they would never agree to that.

Are you sure it a National Kit?

This is Michael with Pim just last month.

Keisse and O'Shea are on different road teams, I guess that Omega Pharma agreed to sponsor them anyway?

That's how it works in six day racing.
This are the team jerseys in Ghent this week: http://sport.be.msn.com/z6sdaagse/2012/nl/deelnemers/

It's obviously not their new jersey. For example: Meersman was riding the pursuit at the Six Days of Gent against Gilbert in his normal Quick Step jersey.
