Actually I have no idea what I'm talking about! This looks like Gilbert's new uniform for 2013.

Last year (well, early this year), Cavendish wanted to wear black Sky shorts with rainbow stripes. UCI said no, either white shorts with rainbow stripes or the regular team shorts.
Cavendish opted for the regular, black shorts.

Google is your friend.

The Messy Divorce of Gilbert & Couke is the title.

"For the medicine cabinet" is the phrase in the bubble. I'll leave you to arrive at your own conclusions.

It's a joke on the fact that Coucke has sued Gilbert because he didn't honor his contract that said he should've stayed with the team until 2012. There's a court case going on right now. The only way Marec can make cycling cartoons funny is by throwing in a doping insinuation seeing as all his cycling cartoons revolve around the same thing these days.

Interesting comments by PG on CN today.
Acknowledging the mistakes he made in shifting teams, and how long it took to sort out.
I think this aspect if often overlooked by our friends on the c***** page.
Also complaining about having to use new saddle & pedals.....I can believe saddles feel different, but pedals (if cleats set up properly??)
