I really don't care for most of the Garmin team, but I have to say that that is actually a really good design. The first time that I've seen them really pull off the Argyle with a normal chest panel.

As for the AG2R kits its always one of my favorites, especially in person with the dark brown shorts.

Cav still running Sram hydraulic calipers - possibly an old training bike as they were all recalled

Sram is offering free replacements to all their hydraulic road and cx brakes. Apparently the issue was that seals failed in the sub-zero temperatures experienced at a cross race. There were no reported failures of the road brakes. Sram came up with a more resilient seal that will function at extreme temps. I suspect pro riders like Cav were the first to get them.

That will be why they are replacing all of their top CX athletes bikes with mechanical at the US nationals? Giving the importance of those athletes to the American market and immediate need, you'd think they would get them first.

Also I believe SRAM stated that below freezing temperatures accelerated the seal failure and it would eventually fail anyway regardless of temperature. It affected seals on the brakes and levers.

I know someone that had 3 seal failures and none were below 0. Don't trust press releases.

According to this article, the exchange is offered to all riders (amateurs included). It also says an exchange of hydraulic rim brakes is available at the same time/location. So I presume that means the issue with the hydraulic rim brakes has already been resolved.

Cool detail with handlebar tape on the hoods instead of the usual rubber.

Guess the main reason behind this is that Bauke Mollema is alergic to the rubber that Shimano is using for the hoods. At least I think its him... Maybe he saved couple of grams by doing this as well, who knows?
