    Movistar 2012 kit

    They added white panels of innocence to the sides of it. Only thing left of the assymetry of 2011 is the shoulders.

    (For Campagnologistas it's interesting to note that Valverde's bike has Record and not Super Record EPS on it.)

    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    That looks like EPS to me...isn't that a junction box on the rear brake cable?

    Sorry for making a confusion here. I should have written that the EPS was Record without Super...

    "White panels of innocence", nice!

    Innocence aside, it will be interesting to see how Movistar does in 2011, with both Valverde and JJ Cobo on the same team. Will Valverde try for TdF again, despite the long TT miles? He's skipping the Giro for sure.

    Well heck, the team has these two GC contenders above all others, and the TdF is at top in terms of coverage and keeping the sponsors happy. So these two guys will be announcing / announced to be targeting the TdF, and will be at the startline regardless.

    The more interesting question is whether the two of them will show up at the Vuelta.

    Doper or not, he was fun to watch. Out-sprinting Armstrong on the first mountain stage in the 2005 TdF was really awesome, after Disco/USPS pulled the whole way.

    Or, him clawing his way back to the front group in the 2008 LBL, with Joachim Rodriguez digging deep within himself to help his leader, was awesome.

    After a long stretch of time not racing, how will his crash-avoiding skill turn out to be?

    We'll find out I guess.
    I remember him doing stylish wins.

    (this may get moved to doping forum, but I had to ask...)

    BS ban? how so? His blood was in the bag at Fuente's office, marked with Valverde's dog name. There's DNA evidence.
    If that's the case, were any bans arising from Operacion Puerto legit (Basso, Ullrich, Scarponi)?

    I love the kit, I think it's dope.

    Great colour scheme, but last year's was more interesting with its asymmetry.

    Liked the old design better.
    1980's - Centurion
    1990's - Peugeot
    2000's - Specialized
    2010's - Bianchi

    Agreed - the old design was cooler. Not sure if its this year or part of last years though - but I like how they are included the country flag on some of the kits. I know Nissan Trek is doing the same with there merger with Radioshack

    This is 2012 as Visconti is Italian National Champion and only signed this season.

    LeOpard's national jerseys are a mess IMO.



    There's no real distinction, it's almost as if they want to homogenise the Championship jerseys into the team. Says a lot about their view of National Championships, but then they are only dealing with Micky Mouse ones on the road!

    When I first saw Visconti in that kit I thought they had the Hungarian champ on the team. The Hungarian flag has the colors inverted (I had to check), but anyway.

    I do understand that teams would like to have a "uniform" look, but there are some traditional champ jersey designs that should not be messed with:

    Belgium (needs black shorts, Phil!)
    Italy
    Switzerland (RSN's worst, Fränk's comes off ok)
    Denmark
    (I cannot help but dislike Kristroff's Norwegian champ kit at Katusha.)

    UCI now has strictly enforced rules for the WC jerseys. If national federations wanted, I'm sure they could dictate the exact look of their national champion's jersey too.
    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    Agree, some of these national champ jerseys are a joke. Turning Italy's tricolore on its side is just wrong (although the jersey looks great, admittedly). The tiny Swiss cross is embarrassing.

    The German RSN one is okay and I don't object to Phil's red shorts... the jersey still screams BELGIUM!!!
