Good color schemes always consist of two or three main colors, Lotto just wanted the Telenet money so adding a fourth was the only option. Maybe it's your 'nationalistic' bias, but Lotto's 2013 design is far from good looking.

They should have declined a big sponsor because of their jersey?

I know i'm the odd one here, since no single other person seems to like it, but of course "de gustibus etc..."

Blanco cycling team looks like a laundry detergent team to me.
Agree for the most part. It's not a bad jersey, but it's not that great either. I like how they went a little darker but would have liked a little more design in it. Just a little too simple for my taste

this years blue is much darker but also much brighter then last years, with the florescent green both on the front and on the back the contrast should make this kit very easily to spot.

unlike previous incarnations of the team movistar is right now the only top sponsor the team has so obviously they only use their colours.

some may think the kit is dull because it only has 2 colours and compare it to leopard trek and sky but the truth is the colours of the leopard trek were black and some washed out baby blue which didn't stand out at all and sky is full black with a type of blandish blue. so they were totally different from the dark but bright blue and florescent green of movistar imo. also when sky changed their kit in 2011 for the green version with the bright green the kit improved 10 fold imo.

until now, best jersey Lotto belisol: the yellow suits very good. Love it.
Also good Euskaltel

Movistar too bare, the rest nothing special.

Man I love that Tecos jersey.
Colombia es Pasion 2011 was awesome too: http://ospina.com/wordpress/wp-conte.../nquintana.jpg
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we?

Edit: I prefer Coldeportes '12 over this.
