Because it doesn't exist anymore(UCI absolved it) . He's currently riding under an American license if I remember correctly.

That's a shame. It was such a funky kit!

This could be awesome, but it might be dreadful. I can't decide.



What do you think?

EDIT: I'm tending to awesome - it helps to have it on a sprinter who eats etc

FURTHER EDIT: Just realised its a skinsuit - meh - that's any possibility of awesomeness denied.

yes - I am just going to pretend I didnt see it was a skinsuit.

Big of FDJ to keep all their logos off it, or so small I cant see them, guess it helps being French team/sponsor etc

French Nats outfit.
Superior design.
No doubt Bouhanni wants to show that big times this year.

Okay... I can't actually find any pictures here.

But I gotta say I'm a bit in two-minds about Birdie's skinsuit! It's an improvement from the one he had at Radioshack, true. But then again; everything is basically an improvement from that...
Still not too much for the smallish flag across the chest design... but at least the kit is completely red-white instead of somehow trying to incorporate the blue Astana colour.

At least they made the affort at Astana to make the jersey stand out from the rest of the team, that's got to be worth something compared to the complete failures RSNT made.

Again a bad angle, but this one shows how it should be done (Fuglsang again):
