    Worst kit of 2010?

    I was going to say Sky until I saw this:



    So far my favorite is Hincapie's champion kit:

    That kit is hideous. The graphics actually aren't bad, but the color choices make the kit look like a small boys pajamas.

    The bike colors are horrible as well. Who got *paid* to choose these colors?

    I think Paolo Bettini would have loved that bike in all gold.

    They almost look naked. It's really bad.

    I'd rather see Astana's kit over this one.

    Well. The kit does sort of match the bikes.. Guess the cyclists kit was an after thought.

    Yeah, Astana was probably going to get my vote before I saw Footon-Servetto. I understand they're working at a disadvantage with those Astana colors, but still. If they kept it mainly blue with a little bit of yellow it would look a lot better.

    When I saw the kit for the first time, I thought, "You've got to be kidding..." It's different, but not in a good way.

    I was also surprised that the Fuji logo on the down tube doesn't stand out more. Perhaps it's the lighting and camera angle, but it's not even legible. The only part where it can be read is on the chainstay, down by the cassette. It's not exactly the best return (exposure) for their investment.

    That may be a good kit now that race radios are to be no more. It will help to camoflague a rider who escapes.

    I feel bad for any riders on that team with an olive complexion. That color would make me look sick green. (Then again, maybe it's a tactical thing: look like you're about to hurl and then attack!)

    I jumped on the bandwagon and wrote a post about it on my blog. Can you blame me? I'm running out of interesting topics before I leave.

    . You go to their website, you'll discover a team sponsor is one that makes Shoe inserts..Can we entirely blame the artist creator of the jersey.. Foot inserts are not exactly prime design material.. Likely the shoe insert sponsor views his product as something beautiful.?. Can a salaried rider get too embarrassed when your sponsor pays to house, feed , and put the shirt on your back...... Even if the jersey is fugly. How about the bikes.. Fuji I suppose.

    It isn't the graphics that make it so ugly, it's the colors they chose.

    Guess I am just not a foot person. But, yes the color is lousy.. Maybe a black background , beige foot print, and red lettering on a beige side stripe. But, maybe a couple smaller footprints as if prints on a sandy beach.. Who wants to email the graphics artist with their ideas.. Hurry those riders are about to go out in public.

    For those who think two people in Footon Kit is too much for the eye to comprehend. You should take a gander at the team photos on their website.. A whole group of cyclists in beige . Hideous..Stay tuned to the Fuji website, maybe their kit might be offered for public sale. ?

    Wait until the team is in full formation in a team time trial and the helicopter is filming them . Spew.

    I saw this Astana gallery on VeloNews and their kit isn't as bad as I originally thought. I think the extra white helps a little.
