You can see that the fabric has the same quality of the shark skin suits in the swimming world. It has the stretch qualities to facilitate high cadence riding while it also offers aerodynamic advantages given the 'sandpaper' surface. :D

what? why? what colour is it now?
Red. Aparently to make the 3 non-pink jerseys the colours of the italian flag

EDIT: Also, according to cyclingnews, it was the "Cyclamen" jersey :D
Sounds jamaican.

hm. strange idea to change it, but I guess it could be worse than red. And I think it was originally red, when it was introduced.

edit: and it certainly looks good on her.

I think so, yes. They then changed it to the shade of purple of the Ciclamino flower

Still hideous. Not anywhere on the level of Footon, but still not a good look, especially given the color-scheme.
What bothers me the most is how off-centre the 'R' is.

Having just watched the Cancer Council Classic, the Radio Shack and BMC jerseys look very similar, especially from the aerial shots from the helicopter.

I couldn't pick em. I was getting excited about BMC thinking they were attacking and then I realised it was Radioshack.:mad:

So does the RS kit get better or the BMC kit uglier from a distance? :D

Sky

Team Sky's kits are the most hideous thing I have ever seen. It looks like they are wearing plastic garbage bags with a blue stripe.

The Sky kits are pretty bad. All black with a stupid white flap in the back that does not fit in with anything. I think I am going to start referring to them as the all blacks with a dumb white patch

True. They looked menacing on the photoshopped pre-season team photos. In real life they seem a bit out of place.

I have thought about this over the past couple of days and have come up with the following.

Favourite Pro Tour kit = Francaise des Jeux, because its simple, clean and provides a neutral easy to spot jersey.

Worst Pro Tour kit = Liquigas, now there are a few contenders here including AG2r and Milram (looking like a cow on a bike is just wrong) but I go for Liquigas as the lime green is just too harsh for me to look at any point in time.

Favourite Pro Continental/Continental kit = Cervelo Test Team in that again like the Francaise des Jeux kit its simple and elegant, plus as seen last year interchangable colours with the seasons.

Least favourite Pro Conti/Conti kit = Due to the numbers this was a really tough one to pick but overwhelmingly and considering (if i remember correctly) that they have lost their Pro Tour status it is Footon-Servetto look a little better in the peloton, somehow! However, it still looks like someone has stood in a pile of vomit with a muddy foot, and i'm afraid that is just completely off the scale in bad kit design.

I think it's cool that Sky is using skinsuits, rather than traditional jerseys, seems like a genuine advance, and distinguishes the kit from others, because in terms of graphics, it is conservative.

Too bad there are not any night races

They don't. Which is why they're never used....except in a very short race. Like a time trial or a criterium. Which was the case.
