Except all the other Tour squads are at Suisse. I guess we'll see them demolish Bahrain or AG2R but then I don't need a Dauphine TTT to know that.

The Tour TTT will be a bit hillier and both Gorka and Ion are missing, so it's hard to compare.
AG2R have a few guys that could/should be on the Tour squad that are great assets in a TTT(Gallopin, Latour, Naesen, Dillier and maybe Vandenbergh), so I wouldn't underestimate them at the Tour.

Lol, a dolphin at the back. Thats not really a pretty jersey.....
Orca :confused:

With my pedantic hat on....

Orcas are dolphins.


Orcas are whales not dolphins.

They are the largest members of the oceanic dolphin family (delphinidae). A number of the largest dolphin species are commonly called whales including orcas, false killer whales, pilot whales and beluga whales. All dolphins however are in the category of “toothed whales” and are more closely related to large toothed whales like the sperm whale than either group are to the baleen whales.

Orcas are awesome, fascinating animals. The 8 year old me would have cheered for Sky just because of that jersey. :D

I like the cause and I also kinda like the orca on the back
But the front is just fugly and why is that kit 3 sizes too large for Froome.
Because now Bertie doesn't ride anymore we all need to obsess about someone else's weight!
I think that would look great with all 8 at the front of the group climbing a mountain. Shame they have to have numbers to cover it.

I love Orcas, however still won't cheer for Sky. On the other hand, I do respect the message and what they are hoping to do with this.

It's not something started by Team Sky as such, more the Sky media group that began the campaign last year, they've already been involved with cricket and football matches in the UK. The documentary that followed the launch clearly showed the destruction we are causing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D35YnZ7_WxM

You may remember the last campaign, Sky rainforest rescue, where Team Sky supported it by wearing the black and green kit for the 2011 Tour. They raised £9 million and saved a billion trees in the Amazon:

How am I obsessing about weight, I just noted the jersey is too large for Froome to fit snugly which makes it look kinda messy. Nothing to do with weight.

I was being facetious.

Oh, I figured it was Sky media and they are using the kits for the Tour to publicized what they are doing. However, a worthy cause and something that needs someone speaking up that has the platform to get the message out.
