    Favorite team/ favorite kit in 05 TDF.

    Favorite team . Discovery of course. American riders might be at their peak of performance this year.Even those who aren't Discovery.
    Our eyes find our favorites by their kit...Favorite kit. three runners up. Discovery, Fassa Bortolo, Cofidis. I like color. Think I vote Cofidis. but most colorful is Euskaltel, but their riders ,except for Mayo are hardly favorites.
    Ugliest kit. Illes Balears.

    Discovery for the team and Gerolsteiner for the kit. I love the blues in that one! If I had money, I'd buy one... but that's for another thread

    Discovery favorite team.

    CSC favorite kit, followed by Euskatel

    I have thought that the Discovery team kit sucked from the moment I saw it.

    Another vote for CSC.

    First, the color combination is perfect: Red for aggression and black for speed. Then they have the cool effect of the eagle feathers on the shoulders, paying tribute to their DS, "The Eagle." When the riders go into a tuck, the feathers flutter. Too cool.

    fav team: Liquigas-Bianchi (it's the second word that's important here)
    fav kit: T-Mobile (because pink positively screams bad-ass!)

    Liquigas-Bianchi, and the fade paint job on the bikes.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Well, I like pink A LOT, so I'll go with T-Mobile. I also like the colors for CSC too.

    I like Gerolsteiner and CSC too, as well as Euskatel.

    I'm biased toward CSC because I used to work for them, and they were a good company. I also like the fact that their jersey looks good with plain black cycling shorts, so if I want to look "team" I don't really need to buy the whole kit.
