Pro cycling 2019: the thread

New year, new thread.

Let’s kick off with this, presented without comment:

Think this might be the worst thing I’ve ever seen.

or, the best?

I see where you’re coming from but… no.

I did like Fuglsang looking like a genuine thug getting pushed around in a wheelchair though.

anything happen in the yawn down under?

AG2R have the nicest bike in the pro peloton

Viviani wins the opening stage. Paddy Bevin finishes 3rd and gets a 5 sec bonus. Could be the deciding factor. 5 editions of the race from 2011 have been won by 2 secs or less. Always a close race. Bonus seconds count.

oh shit that’s absolutely beautiful

Good innit.

the rest are pretty horrible, except bora-hansgrohe’s

the cannondale for EF is really horrible, which is sad

Can’t decide if EF or Team Sunweb’s is the worse. The Cannondale frame and paint job is grim, that Cervelo is disgusting

Quite like the paint job, but those Cannondale aero frames are :nauseated_face:

it’s the lettering as well, the kerning looks all weird for some reason?

just really bad

Yeah.

I like the Giant that CCC are riding but those wheels are tragic.

Jumbo’s Bianchi is still the winner for me.

Won today’s stage didn’t he. Massive crash in the final kilometers

Also, that CCC kit is tasty

took me ages to work out that CCC was BMC didn’t it

If BMC had still sponsored the team, they should’ve been BMCCCC

The DD BMC is nice looking.

season begins on March 2nd iirc
