I like both jerseys! But somehow women jerseys seem to get way more attention to detail where men jerseys are a bit stuck on just use different colors and don't use too many patterns or fancy stuff.
Also interesting for a team to make 2 separate jerseys for men/women, normally you would expect for them all to represent the same brand.

Is Trek female kit getting inspiration from Canyon-Sram? Those stripes are toned down but look alike

That would be too much "Austrian champ thing" while with black it differ a little.
Plus the black background doesnt help.
Need to wait until they are into the wild but overall looks simple and retro enough for me.

The women jersey is nicer as a jersey alone, but if I were a sponsor I wouldn't want it because that graphic bring your eyes away from the logo.

Women' kit is very very nice and particular. Lovely colours, something different.

Why is the "S" not red on the women's front? The company logo is red and I think it would jazz it up, really get your attention. Just me.

Segafredo probably specify monochrome logos on non- corporation colour backgrounds.

You are probably right, since the logo on the white sleeves of the womens jersey clearly has the red "S".

I don't know, it's red on black on the men's sleeve, and red on light blue on this espresso maker https://www.shopmzb.com/newsz-single-cu ... sso-brewer, not a big deal to me, just thought it would look cool.

Edit: it is "not red" on a couple of their other products, so there is some precedent.

Shame it only shows this 1 sand ride and not the ones where MvdP rode it perfectly.

A sad day for Australian Cycling, I was and still am lost for words after hearing about this. Jonathan was an absolute pearler of a bloke and was always up for a chat, whether it be during a bunch ride back home in Melbourne or at his Swift bike shop in St. Kilda, he seemed, imho, to be a geniunely nice guy. I never had the chance to see him race when he was still a Pro though.
As there isn't much information available, from what I can gather it looks to be suicide and I know he had been struggling with some personal demons over the last couple of years, so this is a sad turn of events. Moreso the fact that only 1 day ago he was still posting comments on his FB page and Instagram.

RIP and condolences to his wife and 2 children.

Sad.

Did anyone see that Lachlan Morton signed with EF Drapac Cannondale?

https://www.velonews.com/2018/11/news/q ... vel_480630

Is he going to be there gravel ambassador? If so, it sounds like it could be the perfect gig for him. It doesn't sound like he like/enjoys the World Tour grind nor does it sound like it works for him to be able to peak for his A events.
