Its a pretty nice kit that Omega Pharma-Quick Step revealed yesterday. Color-wise it looks a bit inspired by the Leopard kit.

Its just a shame from a design POV that the very blue Quick Step logo totally sticks out of the rest of the design.

Not great for cycling, I suspect. I used to live in Bergen County but now am in San Francisco. To say no comparison is an understatement....

In any case, the jersey doesn't seem very inspired. The Quickstep logo seems simply patched on, almost like one of those "semi-custom" jerseys you can order in low quantities, or perhaps like a leader's jersey or WC jersey where the guy with the iron-on machine is ready to go with a stack of logos as soon as the winner is announced.

Quite BLAH. Not very inspiring and quite boring design wise.

Are you talking about the jersey or about exit 8 of I-95? :)

Not really, but not as bad as expected. I live around the Princeton Area which is pretty good for doing rolling hills, but it sure doesn't have anything that can be considered close to a mountain.

But I have been lucky to do a bit of climbing in the Alps and Pyrenees earlier so I'll just have to settle for now.

I am actually thinking about going to Colorado in August for the Pro Challenge just to see some real mountains.

Good one. The exit of I-95 is more exciting. I know muted colors are in but shouldn't put anyone to sleep.
