All black jerseys? They wouldn't need to change when they go training.

I was thinking of it either! :lol:

Seriously, I don't think Trek is gonna risk their image with Astana...or not?
I mean, if Im the owner of a brand, I wouldnt do it.

Pretty sure Trek has multi-year exclusive deal with Disco.

Trek has already ruled out sponsoring Astana.


Re the groupset I would suggest Shimano.

Maybe Slipstream makes sense as it is an American team with mostly (I guess) American riders. Since Trek is headquartered in the USA and they are used to working closely with a local team it might be a good fit. Also Slipstream is making an emphasis on riding clean and taking doing extra testing so there is less risk involved in that respect.

Not sure how 'local' discovery are to trek - their base was in belgium, not far from the original waterloo though!

Slipstream ride Felt bikes, I think Treks reputation took a hammering along with Bruyneels this season so going with Astana won't be a surprise given the 'win at all costs' way of thinking.
