Agree, the team seems a little over hyped. But good to see people of colour in the sport and this team will break down barriers to others entering it. A very good thing.

And yes, great kit!
I heard in a podcast one of the 2 brothers who mentioned they will take part at 2022 Tour of Britain...?

Also the world champion on an all white bike.
Not all white. Has the WC stripes down the seat tube.

First race of the year was a little boring compared to last year.

Bernal has been evaluated by a team of interdisciplinary specialists and will require surgery in the coming hours due to multiple traumas, the statement reads. Those traumas include: “cervical and thoracic trauma, closed chest trauma, muscle trauma, skeletal and lower limb trauma.” Bernal is currently stable

Well that is terrible news. Seems like his season is over before it has started, not to mention seems like we could count the number of pro riders that have come back to continued success after braking a femur with the fingers on one hand.

Training on the TT bike doesn't seem lucky for Ineos leaders... Tough for Bernal, hope he's able to recover fully..

That is horrible to read. Hope he recovers to be able to live a normal life, nevermind racing.

I've read on an Italian website that the surgery has gone well and there should be no neurological damage. He remains in ICU.

Poor Bernal, this is absolutely shocking and terrible.

I wish him a swift recovery but these injuries sound quite difficult, like those of Froome. But Bernal is young and has some time on his side. But this year may not be so good. His health in long times is most important
