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.
Thank you.King Boonen said:No, it'll first appear at the Tour but it's a long term commitment.
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.
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.Michele said:I wouldnt say exactly awesome, but I have to admit that it's indeed so bad to make it almost good! Almost!
Any news on the new Radioshack outfit?
Is that some kind of Bianchi tribute?Afrank said: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 think it's great. Seriously, I do.Libertine Seguros said:
Just because a kit is terrible doesn't mean I don't like it. I still love the 2008-9 CSF-Navigare kits, but they were awful. Like a cheesy pop song that is objectively bad, but puts a smile on your face.theyoungest said:Is that some kind of Bianchi tribute?

You criticize everything for being boring and run-of-the-mill, and then someone makes something outrageous and you still don't like it.
I like the attempt at something new, but the floral pattern is pretty awful. I am ALWAYS against bad floral patterns- reminds me of the 90s wayy too much!Dazed and Confused said:I think this can work.
Gotta see the stuff in action in the peloton however.
