The Sky team leader may be dictated by how the tour progresses. It is one thing if Wiggins and Froome are clearly the strongest as last year and can decide who they want to be #1. It is another if someone like Contador breaks away on a difficult mountain stage and only Froome can stay on his wheel while Wiggins falls a few minutes behind. Or vice-versa if Wiggins proves stronger.


I'd be completely shocked if Brailsford came to the Tour w/ out a definite lead rider....but I've been completely shocked before :?

I guess it'll just come down to who's winning races and in form come the start of the TDF...I can't see Wiggin's being designated team leader if Froome is clearly in better form...

The Blanco kit has nice asymmetry.

Agreed, Brailsford has shown no quarter for sentiment in his tenure at BC (Hoy comes to mind) or Sky. He'll go by the numbers, but he will choose a definitive leader.

I think that is a Bontrager bar. They used to have those holes and then those inserts with the zertz type vibration dampners in them.

I think the brown & light blue (cyan? but I haven't seen it in person) looks beautiful.

It looks great in person IMO, one of my top 3 favorite kits. With white/black/red and white/black/blue being so dominant in cycling is nice to see alternative colors or hues being used.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.
