oh and you got to love riis dedication to national kits. sacrificing sponsor colours to have a proper national kit is imo the right decision.

it seems like only a handful of teams do it right this days. :o

saxo, OPQS, BMC and?

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

overal 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 wheel for each monument on top of the GT colours to make them more team oriented instead of being such an obvious contador mark?


Not Cheesy at all....would look brilliant!!!

Team Riis has won the Giro (CSC, Basso), TdF (CSC,Sastre) and the Vuelta (Saxo-Tinkoff, Contador).
So it's not only Contador - maybe??

+1, Saxo always have good national champ kits. Good to see them not following the stripes across the front trend.

The fact Valverde's modeling it hasn't effected your ability to appreciate it?;)

Good to know because that jersey looked like something you'd find in Bike Nashbar's clearance section.:eek:
