The newest greatest team has arrived! Leopard Trek. Here are some thumbnail images from CyclingNews.com today (from last night). Yup, my old company conferences used to look a lot like this as well (matching scarves and suits):
I can't wait to see what their new kits will be like. By the look of their website we could have another black, white and light blue jersey in the Peloton (to match Garmin's and Team Sky's), no one will be able to tell each other apart in a sprint finish. But please, no more brown kits! Go with graphite gray!
Or a leopard version of this for a lead-out could be affective (the character from the new True Grit movie)
I really enjoyed watching the livestream of the presentation today. I enjoyed listening to the German, English and French presenters ("did he just say Jens had a sixth child?"), seeing the guys without helmets and sunglasses, and hearing the audience go crazy over Franck Schleck. Also loved the new white Trek bikes.
I can't believe they designed another black white and light blue jersey! (UCI needs to have a design review committee) (and you better not be a few pounds overweight to wear this jersey). No, it is not this one from a PodiumCafe reader:
