I really dislike the color combination, but it was to be expected.

Blanco's clothing sponsor is now etxeondo, but on the image you can see the pearl izumi logo. Would be strange to me when they change their clothing sponsor mid season

Etxeondo = Giant. Maybe Giant wanted to be subsponsor, but at the expense of being clothing sponsor.

Or maybe this is indeed just somebody's Photoshoppery.

Pearl-Izumi = Shimano who's one of the main sponsors

so in can be either way.

But considering Giant would be sub-sponsor it makes more sense to me they'd stick to their clothing.

How is Etxeondo Giant? I've heard somebody saying that to me before but aren't they an independent company from Basque Country? Or did Giant buy the company?

Good idea, and probably would work. I don't like it enough to actually wear it though. Don't want to get affected by the Rabo/Blanco/Belkin curse, and I'm no dutchie. :p

I really like the new FDJ design :) saw Pinot trialling it a few months ago. Don't like the 21st century part on the back of the bibs of Sky's design; seems to go against their minimal approach. No problem atm with Belkin although I haven't actually seen it on a rider so i'm not certain

Any other designs confirmed fot the Tour???

Not sure a British team should have main sponsors that are American. A different placement of the fox logo would've been better. Possibly on the blue strip of the jersey??

But for other teams it's fine?

Garmin Sharp.

Argos Shimano.

Saxo-Tinkoff.

Lampre-Merida.

Radioshack-Leopard.

Edit:
For clarity, I'm referring to to a second sponsor from a different country, not exclusively an American one.
