Team Sky will part with their traditional black jerseys, and will debut the new white colourway at the Tour de France next month.
The new design still features "all of the elements which have made Team Sky riders so recognisable in the peloton" according to Team Sky themselves, but with the black jerseys swapped for a new, white design. The jersey will continue to carry the distinctive data pattern featured on the 2017 Team Sky kit.
Sky's head honcho Dave Brailsford said of the new design: “Castelli looked at different colours during the design process last year, and we all loved the white. We are always up for doing things differently and decided the best time to unveil it would be at the Tour - the world’s biggest bike race. We can’t wait to get racing wearing it."
What's more, Team Sky are offering fans the chance to be "right behind them" at Le Tour, revealing they will print your name on the back of the very jerseys that the riders will wear at the team presentation - winners will be announced at the event in Dusseldorf on Thursday 29th June, you can enter here. It's quite a unique comp for sure, and we can only assume you will get one of your own to keep if you happen to be the lucky winner...
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He joined road.cc in 2017, having previously worked for 220 Triathlon magazine. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
