I'm in love...
The Day Team Sky disappears from cycling I'll truly enjoy watching a mountainous Grand Tour stage again -- former Milan-San Remo winner I interviewed.

Damn, gotta say I'm a fan of this new kit. Picking out Astana from Movistar is gonna be fun next year

Looks great but I hope Astana's kit will look completely different next year because if it stays more or less the same they'll look almost identical.

It looks like Sky and Astana merging into one.

I'm under the impression this was designed to commemorate Landa's arrival to the team.

A little bit of Astana here, a little bit of Sky there.

I'm pretty sure Astana could sue.

Looks fresh. Not a fan of those jerseys fading into black though.

Eh. Would be alright if it wasn't a complete rip of Astana.

The company rebranded to white but the old green M would be better too

Had exactly the same thought as Alexandre when I saw the shirt. It's kinda nice though.

Agree that hopefully Astana dismisses this year's look and goes for full light blue again. Or at least lets it fade into yellow instead of black.

Like it!
As Movistar still uses the green besides this new blue colour after their brand refresh I hope they'll continue to use green helmets though.

The one in this picture has the white M.

This was long time coming. Probably thinking about Le Tour! Lol. They said it was for visibility purposes.

How will they hide Spanish champion's stripes in it?

Are they claiming that it was designed to reflect the two shades of blue in the old Reynolds' kit, or that it is a happy coincidence that Telefonica changed Movistar the phone company to something similar?

The black bottom of the shirt will change to the colours of the respective country. :o

Now that I think of it, since we are talking about Movistar, I wouldn't discard that option.

Did you add the green or is that the way it will look?

I do like the jersey outside of the peleton. We'll see how it compares to others.
