Bontrager wheels for the company's sponsored WorldTour team, including the new 27mm-only Race Shop Limited D3 at right. Unlike the standard D3 at left, the Race Shop Limited has a super-wide and relatively flat tire bed

Alejandro Marque has accused positive for Celestone. He won the tour of portugal and had signed with Movistar for 2014. Great news I guess as there will be one more world tour opening for a clean rider (smarter dirty rider).

I know that yellow is Mavic's colour, but the combo of Red/White/Yellow/Black is atrocious.

Man I love the paint jobs on those looks though. Mondrian is the way to go

That was the first thing I thought.

I agree with that the Mondrian scheme will be one of the best looking framesets seen in the pro peloton for years.
While Piet used red/black/yellow/white/blue a bit, he did so with a fair use of balance that made it work really well:

Perhaps it's the semi-full red kit or the organic shapes (opposite of Mondrian) and the color white being an afterthought that make it not work?

Those are the Look colors. Why must bike and kit colors match?

Except for Specialized's 'flouro red' motif for their Olympic athletes, aren't most framsets painted to match the kit somewhat?

It's always been the most common, yes, but I always like to see equipment manufacturers stick to their signature colors.
Goes with the territory when you're a diehard Bianchista, I suppose.
