Very nice, thanks!

I wonder what was going on here (http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1365.snc4/163733_482884530837_301690895837_6052295_2168983_n .jpg)

Team Lux makes it's debut as Leopard-Trek (sounds sort of exotic) and everyone was attired in menscarves (http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/photos/a-first-look-at-team-leopard-trek/153277) - a whole lot of scarves (http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/photos/a-first-look-at-team-leopard-trek/153280). They totally need to make the scarf part of the kit.

It takes Benna to carry off the look (http://images.newmedia.lu/rtl.lu/cms/imagegallery/2011/01/06/6673//520//538a6cd25b7de6bfce7926752bdf8211.jpg)

Their new jersey is kind of boring....

http://sport.rtl.lu/cyclissem/news/91203.html

...we will not get to see Fabian in leopard-print. But at least the shorts are black and that's the most important thing.

There's going to be a LOT of blue tones in the peloton this season. Movistar (dark blue, replacing Caisse's red); Saxo-Bank (sky-blue, black, and white); Leopard Trek (sky-blue, black, and white....as if Bjarne wasn't already pissed off); Astana (light blue); Garmin is mostly black and white with small blue trim....

Who's wearing red?

BMC is in red.

:rofl: at the Leopard-Trek presentation part 2. So far they've had two mimes rolling around in big hoops (http://i55.tinypic.com/4gixas.jpg) and a mime doing an hommage to the TdF. Plus they have the Lux Eurovision presenter who knows nothing about cycling.

That's going to be really hard to tell apart from... everyone else. Is Radio Shack still in red? Is radio shack still alive?

Cyclingnews has an overview and grading of all the kits for next year. My favorites are the Radioshack and Movistar kits. Radioshack features red (in a peloton that will be dominated by black, white, and blue), with a big graphic design that works without being too busy or confusing. The Movistar kit is simple and effective; I really like the strip of film effect down the entire side.

I miss T-Mobile....simple, tasteful, effective, a unique color you could pick out of the peloton a mile away. How come no one is using magenta or purple or teal or some other unique color?

On Saxo-Bank:

Design: If there's one element of this just can't take our eyes off, it's the hungry or even evil-looking eagle. Could it be coming out of the rider's shorts? It's just weird.

Liquigas yet again has a "look at my junk" design:

Colours: The hard-to-miss Kermit the frog green is not as prominent so overall, it's nowhere near as jarring. But what's with the green crotch on the shorts? Thank you.

I wouldn't score Leopard-Trek as high as they did (the design is boring), but I can't disagree with this:

Visibility: Sure, other teams are using similar colours, but this kit just works. And since when does Fabian Cancellara fail to stand out in a peloton?

He'd stand out more in leopard print!

HTC has a nice elegant look. Rabobank is easy to spot and maintains their identity. And I agree RadioShack stands out in the field of black and blue.

I miss the days of Credit Agricole's dark green.

Tour Down Under starts this week with the promised Cav-Greipel match up. But another HTC'r - Matt Goss got the win in the Cancer Council Classic (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20110116/wl_asia_afp/cyclingaus)which gives some bragging rights but doesn't count for the overall at the TDU

HTC tweeted a pic of Cav and Mark getting some Oakley goodies (http://twitpic.com/3qs2cg)

Goss gets the win for stage one, but Renshaw gets a lot of love from Matt in this article (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/cycling/2011-01-18-tour-down-under-stage-one_N.htm)

the "young riders" jersey is very colorful (http://d.yimg.com/a/p/sp/getty/89/fullj.c85f567d3f8db49325c7aee6da5b4913/c85f567d3f8db49325c7aee6da5b4913-getty-cycling-aus.jpg)

I spoke too soon.....one of the wildcard teams invited to the Tour de France this year is Europcar ("You've got the French national champion on your French team? Welcome to the tour. To heck with Sastre and Menchov."). And they will be rocking some very nice TEAL jerseys! (Hopefully the color is different enough from the sprinter's jersey to avoid confusion.)

I was all set to object to Geox / Menchov being excluded, but Europcar seems to have some cuties on it, so I shouldn't be too quick to judge :lol:

Poor Cav, having a hard time in Australia. A bad crash (http://img.lequipe.fr/Medias/Cyclisme/201101/650x475/frayeur-pour-cavendish.jpg) and then having to finish the last stage after they opened the roads for traffic. (http://velonews.competitor.com/2011/01/news/mark-cavendish-fumes-after-dodging-tour-down-under-traffic_156233)

Oh sh!t, that's more blood than I was expecting. It seems that Cav is not starting off with a bang. Here's hoping he's just waiting to peak at the right time.


Asked if he had to negotiate much traffic, Cavendish replied.

“Quite a bit yeah, you know, more than you want in a professional race I think.”

Yes, Cav, it probably was more.
