What's your favorite 2009 Race Kit?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Of the ones I've seen, definitely Cervelo. Although I've always been a fan of the Francaise des Jeux kit.

Screw Team kits let them all ride naked with different colored helmets and bikes to distinguish the teams.

The parts down south would look like raw meet after a 150 miles. Can you imagine how sunburned you'd be as well.

No I just think that men that are in shape look good naked , admit it if it were women you'd be thinking the same thing.

Most of the men I ride with ARE women (essentially). I do not wish to see them naked.

Don't encourage her. She'll just end up getting herself banned.
