    well, first off, there are some real clunkers. 'Leakygas' (c. Phil Liggett) and AG2R are dreadful, Rabobank have undone years of good work, Lotto-Bellisol is a mess and as for Vacansoleil..........

    Second place goes to Mr. Murdoch's little helpers at Sky, but, for me, first place has to be awarded to
    (taran-tara!) Radioshack!
    below - a poll. There's only room for ten teams, so apologies if you really like one of the naff ones.

    Europcar for me because I'm a sucker for green. They have also done more silly spectator slapping on the hills than any other team, which is worth a vote alone.

  3. I really like the AG2R kit, in fact I bought a jersey the other day.

    Of the ones in the poll, Sky is nice, but also a bit dull, see also that RSNT. I do like Euskaltel, but mainly because it has some of that great Basque font on it but my favourite may actually be the new Garmin.

    Saxo Bank
  10. watching it now - I think Astana may be my least favourite, it's just....meh.

    Movistar kit looks really nice when they have the Spanish Champion.

    I'm glad to see AG2R didnt even make the short list, their kit should be banned.

    I voted Saxo Bank.

    Have to go with DZ on this one. Just for a change, like. Sky is nice but I can't quite get past the fact that it says "Sky" on it, and that it's a silly colour in which to be zipping up the Pyrenees in high summer. Europcar is OK in a dull, understated way. BMC just misses getting it right, with good colours but all that gratuitous assymmetry. The others are mostly vile.

    I agree... LeopardRadioTrek just about the best. Like the Sky kit, support the team, hate the sponsor. BMC's nice. Garmin's OK, but it's not as nice as last year's kit, and the Cervelo Test Team Kit was better still.
    None of them a patch on La Vie Claire though....
