I didn't think you were allowed to change design mid season (apart from lesser sponcer names?)

I thought for a minute Wiggins had a fashion line with Paul Smith, but it was Fred Perry. Not a million miles away though - Mods and all that.

According to the rules, you can have a special kit for one race a year no matter if there is a change in sponsor lineup or not. It's up to the team, which race they choose and when.

Sky 10 suffered like dogs in the Tour (I think it was one of the hottest on record). In 11 Bradley had to win the national champs just so he could wear a whiter shirt. By 12, they had included more white so he didn't need to upset his training progamme and ride the nationals.
I am amazed that Brialsford has let this step backwards go ahead: maybe they are going to tone it down for 13 right enough
They had the white back in 2010, they suffered because they made a mess of their preparation, not because the jersey was too black. Caisse d'Epargne managed to do alright in their black jersey, not just at the Tour either. Pereiro won the Tour and Valverde the Vuelta for them, and southern Spain in early September isn't a laughing matter in all black clothing.

The jersey looks way better because that white back was hideous.

I love the white one!
Its a white t-shirt with a couple of sponsor names on it. Perhaps Smith's wife added the pink bit at the bottom at some point in the process. Dunno, but its all in the brand name anyway.

there's nothing special about the jerseys. Even I could've designed them.

Lol, I bet that if any of you were given the task to design those jersey's they would not be nearly as good.

It is easy to say that you could have done so if you have seen the finished product.
