    With Garmin becoming joint title sponsor of Slipstream they will race under the name of Team Garmin-Chipotle Presented by H30 from the Tour onwards with a presentation of the new kit to take place on the 3rd of July.

    Is it the end of the Argyle as we know it or has it already become so iconic that Vaughters will keep it. I personally think he would be daft to let go but you never know the power of sponsors and all that. Dare say there are going to be some of the old jerseys going cheap soon.

    Mixed feelings. I like the jersey and would buy one; so the thought of them going cheap is enticing. However, one of the reasons I like it is because it's different! I'd prefer to see it still in the peleton.

    Interesting - I was keen on getting one of the present jerseys when the final design was released, but the price compared to the other team kits put me off. I suppose this will go the same way as the High road kit.

    I say keep the design, just change the logo in the middle.
