    It's a definite difference. The complete change of colors leads to the question do they have a second title sponsor coming? I do like the light blue, but the color fade to black for the shorts could have been done better. On the other hand, at least they were smart enough to ensure they kept a dark color shorts.

    "The shorts conserve the dark shade of previous years and serves to contrast with the striking blue of the new jersey, in accordance with the updated Movistar logo," read a statement from the team.

    "Another of the reasons behind the change of colour was to improve visibility of cyclists, both professional and recreational, who wear the brand on the road, as part of the #RodamosJuntos [we ride together] campaign put in place during the Vuelta a Espaņa."

    True, the light blue is the color in those safety videos. Also finally realized the light blue and white is Telefonica's colors. Telefonica is the parent company of Movistar. Movistar's colors are the dark blue and green. Which then leads to the question are they going to eventually switch from Movistar being the sponsor to Telefonica being the sponsor?

    Very nice. I like the fade to black as well as the new blue top - hopefully Sky does not do something like that.

    Too much black (dark dark blue) in the peloton - so nice to see the return of color!

    I like it but, I'm surprised Movistar would copy Astana so blatantly.

    Seems like Movistar blue has become Telefonica blue: Movistar. TODA LA TV GRATIS 4 MESES - 900 104 871
    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.
