Like the new FDJ kit very much, I would even say it's one of the best kits in the peloton. Will be very easy spot as well.

Reading the article, it's actually a re-branding rather than a new sponsor due to the breaking up of News Corp. News Corp is splitting into two separate companies and 21st Century Fox is going to be the one that continues the sponsorship. The team will remain as Sky Pro Cycling though. The good thing is that the new sponsor is 21st Century Fox, rather than News Corp. News Corp is taking the newspapers, while 21st CF is taking the TV and film businesses. This means 21st CF is likely to be the more stable company, having removed the troubled print businesses out to a separate company so as not to effect what they probably feel will be their main business moving forwards, movies and television.

There is no mention of extra funding, although the article does indicate that the term of the funding has been extended, although it doesn't explicitly state it.


Thank you.

FDJ kits are always great. Most consistently excellent kits in the péloton. Even more so than Caisse or Cervélo were.

Do bear in mind some of the travesties the Portuguese péloton has inflicted on us over the years.

I wouldnt say exactly awesome, but I have to admit that it's indeed so bad to make it almost good! Almost!

Do you assume there'll be one because of Trek buying the license or was something announced?

It will be something light blue themed by the looks of their bikes and helmets. Hopefully we get to see a new kit for the Tour.

Video where they have new helmets.

I'll go on record as saying that if they want to send me a couple I'll wear it on every ride I do.

Oh i didn't know The Shack were getting new kits!!!!

I must say i like the colour of the bikes. Wouldn't it be awesome if they went with a flashy colour scheme like lampre or good old liquigas?
