    Whoever designed their outfits, they must be weel in the lead for the least attractive team colours in the peleton at the moment. Slipstream can now rest easy at having lost that title!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The black is just winter training kit. They said they were planning to race in different colours in different countries.

    As Roger Hammond pointed out, it took a real genius to give them all black kit to train on British roads in the winter.

    I'm not to sure they will get a new sponsor this side of 2009. I'm sure T-mobile Have a claus that must say, if anoyone is to come in this year they will take back there Generosity payment to get them through this year. Unless they get a sponsor that will put in no money this year or maybe just half

    That's about the only kit that I'd consider wearing! Surely you can't even begin to compare it with that masterpiece of foulness that Millar and Co will be sporting?

    Glof? Don't get me started on glof, that's not a sport! Mincing about in pastel slacks and nasty jumpers with a stick. Pah!
    It's about time that cycling abandoned it's obsession with looking like the inside of a packet of Skittles and embraced it's Goth roots. Black kit, black bikes, shades, aero mohicans, eyeliner and fingerless leather mitts with studs. ;)

    Sounds good to me, so where does one buy black leather studded cycle gloves?? (And I'm only half joking) :tongue:

    Right now I think one buys black studded mitts and calls them cycling gloves. ;)

    ...or buy those Rapha gloves and customise them. :tongue:

    What ever the colour of their outfits they've started the season well with having one of their riders win the TDU. Well done to Andre Greipel the new leader of this year's Pro tour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i like black kit, despite it seemingly being frowned upon.
