Can't decide if Nibali's or Tinkoff's are worse, would've preferred something along the lines of this if they're going to go green:

Dark colors give a nice line to the physique, whereas the garish eyesores these teems have choosen makes them look like radioactive Smurfs.

Yes and if they had gone with a green similar to that, they would have been told to change it because it would be to similar to the green jersey.

It's not green, it's fluo yellow. I could have told you ages ago Tinkov was never going to give up yellow in his team's jersey. Why would he choose green?
With the new kits, depending on the lighting in some photos they appear quite green to me, others nearly yellow.

The kits from last year had some yellow, but much less yellow didn't they? I am not a fan of neon and this color is unusual. I'm interested to see how they match other things, bicycle, helmet and glasses.

Last years I like, maybe not good if they are superstitious though.

I am afraid they won't match their bikes with the new jersey. It looks ugly together, and it will be even worse if Contador gets yellow.

And regarding last year's jersey, do you really think Tinkov would like to go back to the jersey with the Saxo color most prominent? :)

I have to agree with you on that. I am hoping Contador gets a jersey ASAP(Nibali too), though I can imagine him wanting to wait to go for the yellow.

I'm sure he wouldn't, but it has yellow and was allowed by the ASO.

No Russians on the Tour team. Also-

I quite like this. Will be very visible on TV, even in rain or fog, or from the helicopter. Therefore it will serve its purpose well.

Interesting that Oleg has put the Russian flag and lettering on the kit. Cheeky little political touch to reward ASO for making him change his kit?

Wish they had helmets and bikes to match. I liked the previous kits too, but now seeing the two yellows together, the Tinkoff school bus yellow looks a bit dated.

IMO of course.
:D

I actually meant that if he's wearing the yellow jersey, it'll be an even more hideous sight ;) Tinkoff yellow bikes and helmet + Fluo yellow shorts + Tour yellow jersey.

It's almost enough to make me wish he does NOT get to wear the yellow jersey :eek:

I like the old jerseys a lot better but I agree that it looks a little bland compared to these new ones.

Surely he would change his shorts... I hope.

He hasn't done that this year.... And in 2011 and 2012 he only got some small colored accents on his shorts to match Giro pink and Vuelta red.
Maybe Contador should grab the KotM jersey... normal Tinkoff helmet and bicycle, fluo shorts and polka dot jersey.
