Wait false alarm that is not their official kit!!!! *sigh of relief*
Thank the Lord Jesus for that!

That's a butterface kit if I've ever seen one! Great personality Butterface?:D
 
Bannan says that choosing which riders to recruit to the team hasn’t been a simple case of looking at the results sheet or the world rankings. A critical part of his selection criteria has been how each rider would fit into the team.
Yep, he certainly fits in. Strong time trial and decent sprint, just like everyone else.

“Having Tomas in the team is a great coup for the type of team we are trying to build,” Bannan said.
It really looks like they are trying really hard to be god at just one thing pretty much.

Obviously they have gotten the inside word that next years TdF will inlcude a 150km TTT
 
Vaitkus is handy, but we already knew he was coming. Seems they could be scraping the barrel soon, all will be revealed once the THR fellas make their moves (this week I guess).

How are the black sleeves on that kit? Horrible.

Gerrans got a fair slab of points for his effort yesterday.

Well, a fair handful at least. Before Plouay he was worth 20 points and with his 3rd spot he moved from 70th place which is worth 10 points to 33rd sport which is worth 30 points so in effect he gained 20 points if he can stay in that 31-50 bracket.

Oh, I've seen the jersey for next year. Not going to describe it because I'm not sure if I'm allowed to but my opinion on it is that if you could think of the blandest, boring-est jersey design you could think of, this would beat it.

Tuarts said:
Ugh. :D

Ok, to clarify: there was no sponsors at all on the jersey, it was just a template that I was told they will use, and stick sponsors on wherever. It was all white, except for black sleeves and a GE logo on the front. Can't remember shorts. It was very bland and uninspiring. Will they actually use that one? I don't know but its what I saw. :D
"I told you so" :D

Please, roll on September 1 so they can announce Goss and this won't seem such a depressing team anymore.
Don't forget Tony Martin and Mark Cavendish.

Good to see that there will be a women's team as well. There should be some quality riders from the HTC women's outfit that they can grab.

The international women being linked are Ellen van Dijk, Adrie Visser (HTC High Road) and Iris Slappendel (Garmin-Cervélo). Those 3 are off contract though, so they could go anywhere.

More importantly, Shack-Trek could make a half decent GC rider or two available!
