New Tinkoff-Saxo kit - Mind your eyeballs

It's a bit lairy.

I can't help thinking Vini-Farnese, which is probably not the connotation or connection they need right now.

Horrible clash with the Team bus and frame colours too, does anyone know if they were forced in to this change due to the yellow jersey?

You cannot have a majority yellow jersey at the tour.

I thought they would just spin in round and have a blue majority, but they fluo one will make them stand out a bit better

Yes, most probably due to be to being too similar in colour to the yellow jersey.
ONCE and Mercatone Uno used to change their kits for the Tour from yellow to pink. Although, I remember Saunier Duval riding in yellow at the Tour de France.

You can have yellow in your jersey, just not majority yellow, Saunier Duval was mainly white when it came to the tour

At the 2007 Tour they were in a mostly yellow kit.
