Yeah, I agree the kits this Tour look pretty homogenous. I miss the days of T-mobil's hot pink, Radobank's orange, etc.

Favorite kit of all time was the Mondrian-inspired La Vie Claire/Look kit....

What's not to appreciate? Blistering acceleration, a train of lead outs peeling off to dodge and jostle amongst... It's exciting, dangerous, fast, everything.

Yeah, I'd love to see TV keep the dots. Points total aside, he's been the KOM in my mind so far this year.

I was really hoping to see Nibali sneak off and gain back enough to put a scare into Sky....
