I would prefer bright colours too.But Im worried that there will be more white as Tinkoff's bank colours are yellow and white...I would prefer orange,pink or red (of course i want their early season 2011 kit,but thats not possible)
Not orange!!!! Do you want the entire team to crash out or something???? ;)

I really liked the way AC put it:
It’s going to be difficult to beat him, but nobody’s unbeatable. That’s what they said about me, too.
and this:

I felt a bit odd when our team went up on the [2013] Tour podium as winners of the best team award.
It seemed as if the team classification win was more humiliating to him than not winning the tour.

i think AC talked abt Wiggo not being included to tell Froome that he doesnt hav the best team with him.

I still feel that in the battle of minds, AC has won by just following the wheels of CF in CD.

Any news abt the team jersey yet? I think yellow suits them better than any other color ;)

Hoy toco reconocimiento del pave de la etapa 5 del @letour .Buen entrenamiento! @tinkoff_saxo #3dias #Tour


 
He looks super lean, but not emaciated. It's been a while since he's looked like this (2009 comes to mind).

EDIT: I never noticed it before today, but he has his logo (stylized hands doing the pistol shot) on the fronts of his shoes. I wonder if this is a new thing for the Tour....

I tweeted the author, and he was aware that Kreuziger worked for Contador, but said he didn't feel like he completely sacrificed himself for AC.

no wonder he wrote such an article.

He claims Bertie is not flamboyant. then he claims that Froome lost because of crash. Rogers is a Sky product. For him, AC is copying Sky's "novel" training technique; trying to imply that even if AC wins(which he is not willing to admit), the success is due to the Sky's technique and not to AC's abilities.


In short, the author is biased.
One thing that has come out is tht DB is worried abt stage 5. so thts one stage where tactics will come to play. with a little bit of help from the OPQS guys, AC should be able to distance a few opponents ;) in tht stage
