Just weird that they almost didn't use Hansgrohe's corporate colour in last years kit.

Have you noticed that sponsors logos on the WC jersey don't have to be black (or any of the other four colours in the band) any more? Saw it on Dideriksen, and I thought Boels-Dolmans were taking liberties, but apparently not:

Aquablue on Zipp would be logical.

I would guess that the marketing of ag2r try to be creative and innovative but at the end the top management take a final decision which remain quite boring.
Not to forget the typical customer of ag2r is actually old and quite conservative.
So certainly a challenge for the dutch graphic design studio.

you are probably right, but what is actually funny is that the same studio does everything for ag2r corporate brochures and everything.

WOW yes you are right quite crazy to see the final design of the ag2r team so traditional....Maybe they see the cycling team as the root based ag2r... :mrgreen:

RIP AG2R one of the finest kit designs for some time.

FFS, not even LW's can make that 3T ting look decent.

Frankly, the only opinion I have about that kit is that I do hope they make their bib shorts about 2-3 inches shorter so they don't cover their knees like this one does :noidea:

Wiggins' ability to both put on and lose muscle is truly amazing. Kind of hard to believe, really. Read all the way to the bottom.

Personally I think it looks decent, not crazy nice but not bad either.

What I find interesting is that Ag2r has been changing a few clothing suppliers so far.
Rosti was sponsoring the U23/Conti team Colpack these past few years but I think they have never been up with a big team in major events.


don't like it.. last year's was perfect
