I thought fascist/nationalist propaganda and design sorta killed modernist aesthetic, which is why it amuses me that its being brought back so hard in contemporary design and fashion. References to that era, therefore, are internally hilarious to me.

Neither Boss or the Nazi party invented the Brassard. And fascism didn't kill modernism.

...but it did alienate L. Mies van der Rohe. Lucky USA.

Anyway, K. Walker. Take a trip to Oslo and take a good long stroll in the Vigeland Park. Good vaccination.

I thought this was the pro cycling discussion, not the doping, nor the nazi/ boss thread.

Back to topic or we need to close this.

I've seen some shots of the new Sky Rapha kit, and that Paul Smith road.cc hoax isn't even close (well maybe the purple in theme but not execution)

Cheap tactic to get clicks I say...

The kit is as classy as you would expect from the Rapha team. Restrained and very similar to what they already sell.

It's not really a hoax is it? They're just speculating.

So Wilier is -1 team (pro tour/continental) for 2013.

Speaking of which, is there a comprehensive spreadsheet or list of teams, license level and what equipment they'll be riding in 2013?
I'm assuming the result would be a men's, but a women's list would be great as well.

If there was it would be on a high revision number already, seems like the teams just keep dropping like flies.

I found one a few weeks ago, hopefully I can relocate it. It had every rider, team, personal sponsors, team sponsors, etc.

Funny that Exergy claims the doping nonsense hurt their credibility when they couldn't make payments on time and the international cycling scene couldn't give a shit about their team. I bet most Americans even have no idea who they are.
