So Specialized is a sponsor of our team for a couple years now, and we just got the annual "get your team goodies" form... I had fun doing some shopping. Did I need any of it? Probably not, but it was a REALLY good deal and we get to try out some nice stuff. I'm particularly looking forward to the shades, which are photochromic and will (hopefully) eliminate the need for switching lenses.
(gloves, glasses, helmet are red, shoes are white)
And 2 sets of Mondo S-Works Open Tubulars. Good, good times.
For all you new racers out there, yes, there are advantages to joining a team.
