because it is primarily black/a very dark blue which is ugly and boring and does not stand out :angry in a few years we will have no bright jerseys left. Last year Lampre went dark, this year Saxo. I blame Sky

I so hope the pictures are very screwed up and it's actually bright blue with neon yellow :(

    Some enhancement on those images doesn't reveal anything other than black on white with some sort of pattern as you say, which looks a little like combat camouflage.





    The second shot does seem a little yellow but that is probably just the effect of the spotlamps on non-white surfaces.

    Yes, you're right, Flol.  :cool



    Still a majority black kit though. Not exactly bursting with originality.

    And there's the source of your "random pattern": the Tinkoff crest used as a watermark.

    !!!!!!

    the crotch eagle was the best thing that ever happened to a cycling kit

    crotch unicorn could be even better

    What I meant was that the thing I thought looked like "camouflage" is the Tinkoff crest.

    So it really was camouflage, eh, Flol? :P After recovering from the shock, must say I'm not keen on it personally but that's only because the other 2014-coloured gear clashes with it. Training only, eh? Hmmm.

    Very bland kit for a vanilla team - and from a branding perspective Topsport should really ask for more as title sponsor, looks like something that you could design yourself online and pick up from decathlon...

    Topsport Vlaanderen is the *fl authorities' sport funding program, much like the lottery funding in *uk.
    It's not a brand, and they have zero interest in getting branding - they merely want to provide a team for cyclists to show their worth in. That's why the team jersey always reflects the colours of the co-sponsor (first Mercator, now Baloise).
