  • My eyes...

  • Just gonna leave this here...

    And in other news, MTN Qhubeka have signed Alan Shearer, Nolberto Solano and Peter Beardsley for 2015

  • I quite like it...

  • Image seems to be broken for me

  • I like it but what are Giant Shimano wearing next year? If it's stripes again, it's going to be confusing, no?

  • Giant Shimano have a new title sponsor so I'd expect their kit to change.

    I've a theory that, with all the sprinters MTN-Qhubeka have signed, they are hoping that other riders will see the new kit in their peripheral vision, think "that's Kittel/Degenkolb/Mezgec*, I'd better give them space" and allow the likes of Bos, Goss, Farrar and Boassen-Hagen a clean sprint from a good position.

  • I like it

  • Froome to target the Tour in 2015 after all.

    I reckon there's substance in those 'Wiggins to ride the Giro' stories.

  • Adam Blythe with OGE next year too. Looks like they're your new British team :)

  • When do we know for sure which 2015 races MTN-Chewbacca will be in?

  • Given that Saxo-Tinkoff is owned by Russian entrepreneur Oleg Tinkov, the camouflage design may well raise eyebrows at a time when memories of the Cold War are being revived.

    This (and the following couple of paragraphs) is up there with one of the dumbest things I've ever read.

    I don't mind the Saxo kit. I wouldn't rock the camo look, but meh.

  • Who wants to wear team kit anyway?
    Camo or not. In full kit you're going to look a tit.

    Half the teams looked like OPQ last year. The Astana kit is rank. But I love it for being able to identify the team. More silly coloured kits on the pro teams please.

  • I like that team that wears yellow. They seem like a small outfit but get results.

  • Go Wiggo! looking forward to april '15 already

  • "First sector of roubaix recon, Bernie already down"

  • He really seems to fancy Roubaix if he's riding it in December. Surely you need a bit of a kick to get away in the first place though? I don't see how he'd escape from the pack.

  • The same way Cancellara does, go to the front on a cobbled section and ride as hard as you can, until everyone else gets dropped. Then time trial to the finish.


  • Yes, winning Paris-Roubaix is simple
