    Is Black the new Baby Blue?

    Two years ago it was Milram, Discovery, Gerolsteiner, Quickstep, and Bouygues Telecom working the blue vibe.

    Now it seems the "Men in Black" vibe has gone from being a way to avoid doping controls, to being a fashion statement. Typical cyclists, always a tad late with what the current trends are.

    OK, I realize that a UK 'pro' team is minor league even compared to a US domestic team, but this is getting a little boring by now.

    The high road kit is ridiculous.

    Rock racing at least has some style to it and fits their image.

    Does this mean my white shoes and white bar tape aren't PRO anymore?

    Black and white actually match, believe it or not.

    apparently the riders receive one jersey as their sole compensation for racing.

    That's still better than the pay for many pro cyclists. Not bad.
    Weight weenies keep it light.

    That puts them in a pretty high tax bracket. Might need to sell off the sleeves.

    I presume this still means the banana yellow bar tape I've selected for the year will still be a bit...odd.

    I was there spectating, and did think it a little odd that he had his jersey unzipped. Having said that, it was 100+ degrees in the shade
