Ofc its suvjective, but I got a feeling that if u made a vote on the lotto shirt the majority would dislike it (which the comments in this thread so for also suggests).

Not sure but youngest might be talking about Blanco-Giant now.

I've slowly become to appreciante ugly cycling jerseys. They have their charm so I like the new Lotto Kit :)

I don't necessarily mean Blanco, although they did catch a lot of flak for a jersey that is easier on the eyes than the Rabo jersey. But because the Rabo jersey was easier recognizable in a peloton consisting of mostly blue-black-and white jerseys people like it better.

That's why I say ugliness is relative in cycling jerseys. The Lotto jersey is b.tt ugly, but so are a lot of legendary jerseys.

True. We had a thread here of Best Jerseys Ever. And a lot of the stuff posted there was way uglier than Lotto or Blanco Jerseys.

People also disliked the OPQS jersey at the beginning of this season and now almost everybody loved the 2012 jersey.

I actually think the Lotto jersey is good looking. Only a bit too crowded with all the sponsor names, but hey, it's money.

I do however think their shorts are **** ugly. Should've gone with a simpler design there.

Yeah, it's true. I remember doing a little bit of defending of those kits in last year's version of this thread. Hard to imagine now, though, right?

Maybe the critics were just a vocal minority.

Anyone else seen this one? A preview of the Saxo-Tinkoff 2013 jersey

Not the best picture available to get a full idea of how it 'really' looks but kind of similar to the 2012 one...

Indeed no eagle but if you look closely, the left sleeve has three stripes: 1 in yellow, 1 in pink, and 1 in red on Alberto of course

Sorry for my ignorance.
What's 'bib' the abbreviation for?

it's indeed an improvement from last year. the transition from the blue to the yellow is much smoother now that it happens half way down the saxo logo in the middle of the chest and not on the belly of the rider.

the back is also looking very good this year. the kit should also be easy to spot from the moon so that's great.

overall it looks like an improvement over last years rushed(according to riis) kit

also i know the GT colours are because of contador but if you think about it, with several riders, on the road at least, saxo has won all 3 GT's and 4 of the 5 monuments over the years. would it be cheesy if they added something like a star or a wheel for each monument on top of the GT colours to make them more team oriented instead of being such an obvious contador mark?
