Am I missing something here - they've got the red kit at Tirreno and a blue kit at PN ?(or am I going mad?) Are they changing their second sponsor?

    They have a 'special' sponsor thing for PN. It's one of heir own products

    Edit: I mean it's a Soudal product. 'Fix It' or something
  • Yeah is just for PN. Soudal have a big seller in France (Fix It) and they're allowed one special kit per season.

    This was intentional, right?

  • If he's really used that to put the decal on the car, there's a whole mess of paint coming off that door next week.

    And you've started with a speech mark but ended with an apostrophe.

    Sorry to be pendantic...

    Assumed the pendants thing was a 6music reference.

    Prefer the Lotto away kit myself, too many red kits in the peloton at the moment. You're never going to be Saeco so stop trying.

    Totally this. the Androni and Lotto Soudal ones are a nightmare to tell apart (for me anyway) from a reasonable distance. Katusha's darker red is fairly distinctive and Cofidis I don't have such an issue but bring back the airfix decal kit that Androni had in previous years. At least it was distinctive.

    That's a massive does of POE he's got in that syringe.

    I will stick up for the Lotto home kit.

    Its red and lovely and classical of design.

    If you think that's bad check out Griepel's Twitter avatar. Not the best pose :wink:

    One more vote for the "home kit" though.

    Almost bought some soudal glue in b&q the other day just because it had a cycling team name on it. True story.

    Somewhere, some guy is banging his head off the desk trying to turn cycling fans "nearly" buying sponsor's products into cold hard cash.

    What if they put a photo of Thomas de Gendt strapped to a chair, held to a wall by Soudal glue above a pool of sharks? Like No More Nails used to.

    Was in B&Q last week, and left having bought Soudal glue and Quick Step underlay. I feel like I am single-handedly keeping pro cycling afloat. And should probably get out more.

    I have some Soudal sealant, although I think I bought it before the days of Lotto-Soudal. Also we have just left Sky TV and have never played any continental national lotteries. I did nearly hire a van from Europcar once though...

    If we are playing this game how many of you wear Rapha and drive a Ford?

    Me? No Rapha and I drive a Skoda - like every cycling fan should ;)

    We did have sky till we moved house the other week. Nothing to do with cycling though, girlfriend just wanted to watch game of thrones...

    If I was in the market for that kind of glue I would definitely buy soudal glue over competitors (except if one of the options was mapei...). I was only in b&q for draught excluders and I don't think any draught excluder manufacturers sponsor any cycling teams :)

    I went past Mapei world the other day in Clerkenwell. It was not as exciting as I had hoped
