TdF 2012: Special Jersey Edition

Why, oh why, could Wiggins not have won the British champs again this year? The ideal of three bad-ass champions jersey on the super minimalist Sky kit was too much to hope for.

My money isn’t on Wiggins…but I’d have no problem with him winning. I’m just stoked to have a TdF without Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador.



Team Kit: Lotto 2012 Edition

It’s strange, but I feel like helmet covers are one of these things that ¬†have come and gone every 5-7 years for the past 25 years:


Lotto is looking pretty good this year…lame-o swooping mega logo on the right leg notwithstanding.


Cycling Kit: French Edition

For whatever reason, got a bit carried away tonight looking over the world of French amateur clubs and racing. Mainly looking for cool kit – of which there is plenty on offer. Plenty of ugly stuff as well, of course. A current favorite is the recently-jumped-to-pro Bretagne-Schuller team, but I’ve also liked the Cotes d’Armor kit for a few years as well (for some good shots, check this out).

This gives a good feel for the Bretagne-Schuller kit, with a bonus shot of the venerable top-tier Vendee U club kit as well:


Another good kit shot, which also shows a guy who is, for my taste, looking just about perfect as a bad-ass bike racer:


I’ll keep looking, and posting.
