Are they wearing speedsuits/skinsuits with them having a shaped profile at the jersey hem?


That's the normal kit made by Giordana from few years now; same as the Vermacs sponsored teams.

Looks like regular Giordana Formared Carbon jersey and bibs.

I didn't notice the green on the shoes, they do look good.

I actually don't mind all the little sponsors, it reminds me of Italian teams in the 80's & 90's...

It's a mess.


Cause economy sucks and they aren't able to have 1 big single sponsor but only thousands of small ones...?


:up:

Cycling is considered to be one the best return on investment. Big biz are afraid to touch many teams, scandals can't seem to slow down. 2014 will be ever a bigger scandalous year. Since the corrupt UCI mgmt is out of the door and WADA/USADA are getting more involved and few very deep testing methodologies are being put in place.

Does that Bardiani team bike still have an anti-scuff shipping sticker on the crank arm? Nice setup, but that's like wearing a suit with the security tag still attached. Details...

I doubt they made the decision to take paying sponsors for fashion reasons.

The reason why, is usually because as a pro conti team, they have to pay wages to meet UCIs rules etc. Riders often bring their own personal sponsor to a team to pay their salary. Therefore, by default become a "sponsor" of the team.
