The Sky kit looks good, distinctively Rapha. Maybe a smaller Union Jack on the right sleeve would be better.

It does look a bit Thunderbirds uniform though with the full kit :)

I cheer for quite a few of these guys, but man I feel sorry for them. While SKY is traveling with custom mattresses and pillows for all their riders. These poor guys at Lotto have to spend half their training time posing for ridiculous photo's:

I don't have a problem with Rapha, but I definitely wouldn't name "fit" as one of their strong points.

The old kit (also MOA) was really good. The Team had a diffent jersey and bibs for every possible occasion. The fit was really good too. Some of the jerseys used 5 different kinds of fabric. Yeah, it may be a bit 'one-note' from a design perspective but from a technical perspective, it is among the favorite kits in my collection. I hope the 'Rapha' kit is as good as the 'Adidas' stuff...

If Rapha doesn't fit you, try a more generous club cut of another brand. I've found it to be very form fitting and appropriately proportioned despite having an odd torso/arm length for my height.

Apparently, Burry Stander died today, dont know the circumstances. What a sad lost for MTBing, a young talent is gone. He was an awesome rider, he even replied to me on Twitter qhen I asked questions about specialized fit. So sad.

More information:

Cape Town - South African mountain biker champion Burry Stander has been killed while training at Shelly Beach on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast on Thursday.

Reports indicate that Stander, 25, was killed after being hit by a taxi.

JOHANNESBURG - Mountain bike master Burry Stander has died after being run-over by a motor vehicle on KwaZulu-Natal’s South Coast.

SA Cycling president William Newman confirmed on Thursday that the 25-year-old was out training when the accident happened.

It is believed his father was riding with him at the time.

He was out training, and apparently there was a motorist accident.
