New team jerseys for Tour de France

Garmin-Cervelo new team jersey for TDF

A new jersey for the Tour de France makes sense, white in France in July is smart. The old Garmin-Cervelo team jersey was black, the new team jersey is white, which will be much better in the heat of July. Also the team will no longer blend in with the jersey of Team Sky.

Who will be wearing this new jersey?
