Looks good, although I was also pleasantly suprised by ISN. Wasn’t expecting a kit change, but it looks waaay better than their normal kit.

I wouldn't say "again," but the jerssy and bike look good.

Hopefully there isn't such a limited run like last year and their stupid placing system that stuffed up for me. Would be nice if they had a minimal logo/training version as well.

It seems like a fail that Rapha doesn't have all the kit for sale on the day of annoucement. If it is for sale, I can't find it on Rapha's web site.

Small batch speedy production and shipping for the team, longer led times for us.

I like the ISN. And the EF too, even if it's not as outrageous as last year's. I'd like to se a pic with a rider on the bike, but I can wait until Sunday evening.

Rapha will do a collab with POC with a RCC version of the Ventral Spin. It's dark blue with pink highlights.. Should go really well with this EF Giro kit.

At least someone with a bit of humour in the peloton.

Reminds me of Valentino Rossi's famous face on top of his helmet for entertainment .

Michael Schär should do a helmet with the
UCI fine/ejection notice for giving the fan a empty bottle :lol:

Joe Dombrowski wins a mountain stage in the rain, using rim brakes. Wonder if we will see more teams keeping rim brake bikes for use in hilly stages.

The funny part is the short interview of his DS Fabio Baldato who mention that his weak point are downhills but that even with rain "...he managed to do everything right".

Bernal was on an obsolete LW wheels even yesterday, I was genuinely surprised considering it was raining since km 0.
