Plenty of pics tagged with #chpt3 on insta. It would be much better without the weird collar details/ clasps etc. reminds me of some of the weird waffa collections like the "peace race" series.

Porte rocking some new Giro Techlaces. He was on Sidi last year right?

Hoping he has a solid year and can string a good 3 weeks together without untimely punctures, good team support and a lack of stalled motorbikes.

As fun as watching Froome run was I really wish we could have seen the finish of that attack.

I've rooted for BMC since the Cadel days. I think they'll have their best year since the TdF year

- sorting out the leadership for TdF
- TJ opting for the Giro (I was one of the few who responded to his question about Pink or Red on Instagram...hey, maybe his listens to fans as well). I'd be happy to see him top 5 here IF he gives a solid 3 weeks
- with Gilbert and Phinney gone, GVA has full freedom and leadership at the classics
- they stocked up on solid guys


It would be interesting to see who works for who between Allaphilippe and Gilbert. From what I know JA loves working by himself. I hope they dont drop the ball again this year. I hate the option 1 and 2 captains/leader in the race - sometimes it's too late when option 2 is told to "go for it"

That's rather D.Martin who doesn't like to work for others. Last 2 years in the ardennes classics J.Alaphilippe has worked for Kwiatowski then protected Martin until realizing he was the strongest. Same in Rio with Bardet.

I thing this year Gilbert will be the first to attack with Alaphillipe and Martin following the chasers.

I agree. The Swiss getting a style lesson from the UAE. 2017 is full of surprises :lol:

WM3 kits look decent too, the black and green is nice in CX.

Good to see Youcif Mirza stepping up to WT as well - first time an ex-team mate has done that!
