I understand there isn't much they can do about the colour choices (all sponsor-driven)... but can't they do something better with those colours? At least its easy to spot!


In an increasingly monochrome péloton, standing out is good. All these black-white-and-blue kits look great in the photographer's studio and at the deluxe press launch with the bigwigs and the media... but they're hard to pick out on a poor quality image on a rainy day in Belgium, or from a helicopter at a distance in the mountains of the Basque Country.

Being neon pink erases this problem. You always know where the Lampre guys are. And that means that if they do something, it's easier for the commentator to spot, which means they get mentioned more often. This means that the sponsor is easier to see, and easier to remember. Therefore it is a big success for a sponsor, especially if their team isn't likely to be winning big otherwise. Remember Footon?

Lampre riding WT races is just a myth that has never been proven.

exactly my thoughts-Nanili cannot be doing such poor job- even with plain colours......... so Movistar kit is a no go.

Saxo & Vini Fantini kits are the ones I liked so far....

THey had to switch to green, since Sojasun's color is green, as opposed to blue for Saur last year. They are also supporting a good cause, people with Myopathies (telethon on the side of the jerseys) but I guess it would be replaced by a new co-sponsor during the season.

Looks like an upgrade from this year. Still boring, though.

Ok, I am revising my opinion on the new Sky kits. Looks pretty darn good on the bike actually.

Backside. Should still be easy to spot from the helicoptor, especially with Rabobank gone.

Oh horror I just spotted the socks are black :(


The shorts have to be a major improvement. The Basque flag might have been better placed on the chest - on the sleeve it looks like a bird got them.
Overall much better.

That's nice, although I found the all-white look back in the times of Gilbert @ Francaise des Jeux more classy!

I know i'm the odd one here, since no single other person seems to like it, but of course "de gustibus etc..."


It's a good looking kit to me. I have no problems with it. I'd wear it proudly with no shame if it were my club/team kit.
