Makes it look less like Orica and more like Astana, but don't think the team can help it if the main sponsor did a rebranding to light blue.
Only they should have kept the fade out to make it a bit more original and not a complete copy.

In a gif they link the new jersey to the first one used by the first team; they should have gone full retro with that design.
At least it was gonna be different!

I was watching some of the Contador highlight videos that were just posted on Youtube. I just couldn't help notice how awesome he looks in the Trek kit. The Tinkov and Astana kit he was riding in looked hideous. He went out on a high note, kit and all.

I was also wondering if any of the riders think that Froome sprinting to keep the green jersey on the final stage was a jerk move. To me the class move, is for the top GC guy to let the other guys have the polka dot and green jerseys. Maybe his attitude is to show the world how dominant he is, that he can even get 11th on a sprinter stage and win the green jersey?

+1 on Contador :thumbup:

Same opinion on Froome/ Sky :evil:

Yeah I agree, he has no class just like Merckx or HInault.

would be cool to see poels have a go at the giro next year, he seems better suited to it than G

there are trees as yet undiscovered in the Amazon rainforest which are more suited to compete a Grand Tour than "G".

If that were the case then how many riders of yesteryear would also be assholes? A prize is a prize is a prize. They have every right to be up there fighting just as anyone else.

Trentin (and his team) probably won't help Froome in any future races.

Sky have been controlling the race since stage 3. they put a lot of work, it is a way for Froome to thank his team mates, winning the jersey for the most consistent rider and thank his team.
remember it´s not a sprinter´s jersey, is a consistency jersey
Sagan won the green at the Tour in 2015 with ZERO stage wins, while Greipel won 4 stages

He should just do the Giro-Tour-Vuelta triple already. He's already proven that he's, at the very least, as strong as the best dopers of all time (none of the best dopers were able to do the Tour-Vuelta double, only 15s off the pace on Armstrong's time up Ax 3 Domaines, etc).

The best doper of them all never tried. The second best never really had a chance because there was no such thing as the Tour - Vuelta double on the race calendar in the early 90's.

Who was the best doper of them all? I think he's probably been usurped in his own territory...
