Watching these three guys from the helicopter shots was difficult because the blue and white of all three. In soccer, if two opposing teams have too close of a color match, one team will wear (for that time only) like bright yellow. Their is too much fricking blue in the Pro Tour. Even cyber inposed color markings on the backs of the rider (via TV technology) would help differentiate the riders.

From the the ground I was having a hard time telling them apart. The blue shades and graphics are so close.

Corporate sponsors like blue, they think it looks professional. Expect to see more of it.

If the feed were just a bit clearer, I don't think we'd have these problems. But yeah... sometimes it was difficult to track one team from another.

Yup, too much blue. I thought the same thing today and for several races earlier in the season. Whenever the Green Bay Packers get their act together and sponsor a team, it won't be too soon.

I wonder if the Liquigas-Bianchi kit haters might have changed their tune now?

Actually, loyal celeste fans hate them because they aren't "celeste enough."

Or should I capitalize "Celeste?"

As a general rule of thumb, you can always pick out the Discovery riders because they're the ones behind the Quick Step guys

sorry....

George Hincape always wear those white rimmed sunglasses.
Lance Armstong has a Lone Star State design on his helmet.
Roger Hammond is wearing the British National Champion's jersery for now.


The Quick Step riders usually win the race.
