  • I really like that Bahrain one.

    The all-blue socks look dreadful, and thats one of the few times I think white shoes look bad. Leg length on the bibs looks too long, and whether it is just a combo of photo angle and the bad hair day or what, that helmet looks like something nicked off a 6 year old.

    Graphics layout and colour panels done by the work experience kid too.

    Basically, the old joke of “apart from the cut, the colour and the fabric, that’s a nice suit” applies here.

    The blue is McLaren's Fistral blue, the orange is their corporate papaya,so its combo of sponsor colours & Bahrain red,done in segments like the team logo which is based on the Bahrain flag.

    I think i get what they are trying to do with it,even if it looks abit of a dogs dinner of a kit at first.
  • Mille watches are horrendous ostentatious lumps of tacky cr4p. No doubt a McLaren driver’s watch of choice. A Bahrain based McLaren driver’s watch of choice (and Cav’s and Froome’s). God I hate that kit!

    I like the diagonal line - but nothing else.

    They are fantastic from a material science technology standpoint. Looks and the bulkiness are certainly divisive.

    Not a fan of red or orange, but quite like the above jersey, and much prefer it to the really hideous BH kit from this year.

    Material science and technology is the last thing a Mille owner thinks about when they buy one. They're not a patch on a Speedmaster Ultraman.

    Anyway...the kit's still grim.

    Edit...the other team claim they nicked the design. Putting my tin foil hat on I reckon they took a bung and took the blame ;-)

    Yeah, somehow they copied the kit before it was announced...

    Lotto Soudal

    Lotto Soudal, not sure which version I like yet, really needs to be seen in daylight not moody dim lighting

    There's definitely hints of Castorama in it.

    They always get it right for me, Lotto. Another good looking jersey.

    I actually quite like that. And the bike too.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    CanyonSRAM looks pretty good variation of previous years with a switch to navy from black as the base colour

    CANYON continues with ALPECIN-FENIX (formerly Corendon-Circus)!

    CANYON continues with ALPECIN-FENIX (formerly Corendon-Circus)!
    Since January 2020, the team of Mathieu Van der Poel - and now Petr Vakoč - has been renamed. But they don't change bicycles. Cooperation with the German Canyon will continue.

    Alpecin-Fenix ​​is ​​a new name for a team run by visionary brothers Philip and Christoph Roodhooft, who spoils superstar Mathieu van der Poel at his center and is preparing for his second season in the Pro Continental category.

    Mathieu van der Poel will lead Alpecin-Fenix ​​across disciplines, as he is known to be successful in cyclocross, mountain biking and on the road. The number one goal of Mathieu van der Poel in the 2020 season is the gold medal at the XCO race at the Tokyo Olympics!

    Roman Arnold, founder and director of Canyon Bicycles GmbH, said: “We are delighted to continue working with Alpecin-Fenix ​​as a sponsor and partner in supplying bicycles. From the beginning, we believed in Philip and Christoph Roodhoof's vision to create a multidisciplinary team that could be competitive in more than one discipline. And the famed Mathieu van der Poel racing on all terrain on Canyon bikes is just incredible. So far we have had an incredible number of victories in all categories, so we can't wait to see the 2020 season for Alpecin-Fenix! ”

    Cofidis. De Rosa

    That looks good. Do they really have no other sponsors? No other stickers or company ID on that bike at all. Odd for a promo shot if that's what it is.

    Is it just the camera angle or does that frame have a *really* low BB?
